Abstract This Statistical Brief provides a summary of the attitudes adults have regarding the need for health insurance coverage and its cost over the time period 2010 2011, based on data from the 2010 and 2011 MEPS-HC. A description of the variation in agreement levels with these attitudes for adults further distinguished by demographic and socioeconomic characteristics is also provided. In addition, the persistence in these attitudes toward health insurance coverage is examined. For this report, strongly agreed and agreed responses were combined into an agreed category while strongly disagreed and disagreed responses were combined into a disagreed category. All differences between estimates discussed in the text are statistically significant at the 0.05 level unless otherwise noted.
