Poll finds 1 in 6 Ohioans do not have health care

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

The 2011 Ohio Health Issues Poll found that more than 1 in 6 Ohioans ages 18 to 64 do not have health care.

This is up from just more than 1 in 9 adults (12 percent) in 2006.

The Ohio Health Issues Poll is conducted annually by The Health Foundation of Greater Cincinnati.

One factor in being able to get health care is the stability of a person's health insurance coverage. A measure of this is whether a person has been covered continuously for the past 12 months. Fewer than 1 in 10 Ohioans ages 18-64 (7 percent) who were insured at the time of OHIP had been uninsured at some point in the past 12 months. This is down slightly from a high of 13 percent in 2007.

One in 7 Ohio adults (14 percent) of all ages reported that a member of their household, besides themselves, was currently uninsured. This was up from 12 percent in 2006, but down slightly from 20 percent reported in 2010.

Ohio adults with lower household incomes reported much higher rates of:

• being currently uninsured

• being currently insured but uninsured at some point in the last 12 months

• having a household member who is uninsured.
