Modern Healthcare

Adults with intermittent insurance were less likely to have a regular doctor, and one-quarter of adults younger than age 65 went without health insurance for some of the year that ended last June, according to a newly released report.

The report, based on a nationally representative survey for the Commonwealth Fund, found employer health benefits had been the source of coverage for 41% of those who went without insurance at some point during the period. Another 27% never had insurance, according to the report. The online survey was conducted last year between June 24 and July 5.
