Health Policy and Law Each day
2022 SEP 08 (NewsRx) — By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Health Policy and Law Each day — Investigators discuss latest findings in veterans. Based on news originating from Ypsilanti, Michigan, by NewsRx correspondents, research stated, “With the increased availability of community care to veterans from the VA MISSION Act, policymakers and providers need to know how older veterans are insured, particularly before Medicare eligibility at age 65.”
Our news reporters obtained a quote from the research from Eastern Michigan University: “Using data from 1996 to 2018, this study examines the insurance patterns of veterans prior to the expansion of access to community care through the VA and compares those patterns to nonveterans. This study finds that veterans usually tend to have insurance than nonveterans and that they’re less more likely to depend on Medicaid and Medicare before age 65.”
Based on the news editors, the research concluded: “Regression estimates also suggest that veterans with at the least some college education are less more likely to have private insurance and usually tend to be uninsured than nonveterans with the identical educational attainment.”
