Abstract: The Uninsured in Spokane

Mentor: Dr. Lynne Bownds, Economics

An initial study by Dr.David Bunting from Economic Department at Eastern Washington University has shown that a large percentage (approx. 40%) of Eastern Washington residents are uninsured even though many subsidized health programs are available to them. A few of these health programs are Medicaid, Basic Health Plan (BHP) and Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP). Various organizations in Spokane lend a helping hand to the uninsured, one of which is Health Improvement Partnership (HIP).
