I need statistics on medical insurance in the United States. What kind of information can you provide?


Thank you for submitting this information request.  Our database has many reports about medical insurance in the US.  Three main reports are profiled below as well as a list of by-state reports.

Individual states have produced their own reports on the medical insurance industry in their state. Some of them are below.  Among the information you will find in these reports is the status of the numbers of insured and uninsured.

  • The State of Washington, Uninsured 2014-2015, Feb 2016

Larger, nation-wide reports are produced from organizations like the Department of Health and Human Services and The White House.
