Lack of health insurance is strongly associated with lack of access to health care services, particularly preventive and primary
care. The uninsured are significantly more likely to be in fair or poor health, to have unmet medical needs or surgical care,
not to have had a physician or other health professional visit, and to lack satisfaction in quality of care received.
