How Effective Are Different Welfare-to-Work Approaches? Five-Year Adult and Child Impacts for Eleven Programs. Health Care Coverage at the End of Year 5


Data on health coverage come from the Five-Year Client Survey. Since coverage is measured at only one point, the month before the five-year survey, it is not possible to measure the continuity of coverage. Respondents were considered covered if they reported receiving Medicaid, if they were working and had accepted their employer's health insurance plan, or if they reported receiving coverage from another private source. If they were receiving welfare or SSI, they were assumed to be covered through Medicaid.
