The TEDS Report February 11, 2010: Uninsured Employed Admissions to Treatment

cover of The TEDS Report February 11, 2010: Uninsured Employed Admissions to Treatment
In 2007, almost two thirds (61.5 percent) of substance abuse treatment admissions working full time did not have health insurance. The criminal justice system was the most common source of referral among both employed uninsured admissions (59.8 percent) and employed admissions with health insurance (46.1 percent); a very small proportion of both groups were referred to treatment by their employers or an employee assistance program (1.0 and 3.2 percent). Uninsured employed admissions were more than three time likely as their insured counterparts to have reported government funding as the primary source of payment for treatment (45.1 vs. 13.5 percent); more than two fifths of both employed uninsured and employed insured admissions were self-pay clients (41.7 percent each).
