Minnesota Study Shows People with Mental Health Problems More Likely to be Uninsured

A new University of Minnesota study shows that people with mental health problems are more likely to be uninsured and rely on public insurance than people without mental health problems. The cost of mental health services continues to be a concern, especially for persons with serious mental health problems who are uninsured. Public insurance coverage, such as Medicaid or Medicare, generally provides people with mental health issues the most affordable means to access needed treatment.
