Annual Insurance Update 2023

Annual Insurance Update 2023

Between 2019 and 2021, the COVID-19 pandemic significantly affected health, employment and income in Kansas and around the country. It also impacted health insurance coverage, as the rate of employment-based coverage declined and the rate of public coverage increased. In 2021, for the first time, the uninsured rate in Kansas (9.2 percent) surpassed the overall U.S. uninsured rate (8.6 percent).

This Annual Insurance Update 2023 uses the latest available data (from 2021) to provide information about insurance coverage in Kansas, including trends over the last decade and groups experiencing disparities in coverage.
