UT study finds fewer Tennesseans lack health insurance
The Tennessean, October 1, 2008
Fewer Tennesseans are without health insurance than a year ago, according to a study by the University of Tennessee's Center for Business and Economic Research. The study found that the estimated number of state residents without health insurance dropped to more than 566,000, or 9.3% of the population. The study credits the decline, in part, to the growth of CoverTN, a state healthcare program that began in 2007.
