Description
  • Abstract

    This data collection comprises data from the first round of the Massachusetts Health Reform Survey (MHRS), a survey designed to track the impact of Massachusetts health care reform legislation passed in late 2006. Interviews were conducted with non-elderly adults in Massachusetts beginning in fall 2006, just prior to the implementation of the major components of the legislation. The survey collected information on health insurance status; specific types of health insurance coverage held by the survey respondents; insurance premiums and covered services for those with insurance; access to and use of health care; out-of-pocket health care costs and medical debt; health and disability status; and demographic and socioeconomic characteristics. Respondents were also asked about their impressions of the health care system in Massachusetts and whether they supported or opposed the new Massachusetts universal health insurance law.
