Uninsured people with serious health problems are less likely to see doctors regularly and more likely to postpone needed care or go without it altogether. This report compares the health care of insured and uninsured non-elderly people with five common health conditions: heart disease, hypertension, high blood cholesterol, arthritis, and chronic back pain.
