The Colorado Health Access Survey – the CHAS – is the premier source of information on health insurance coverage, access to health care, and how health care is used in Colorado. Findings from the 2013 CHAS, released November 11, 2013, give a detailed picture of Colorado’s changing health landscape.
Data from the 2013 CHAS will serve another important function – providing a baseline of information to help measure the impact of the Affordable Care Act in Colorado. CHAS data will show how many additional Coloradans obtain health insurance, whether it is affordable, and whether having health insurance translates into better access to health care.
Meanwhile, trendable data is now available from three surveys in 2009, 2011 and 2013.
The 2013 survey was fielded between April 15 and July 27. More than 10,000 randomly selected households participated in the 20-minute survey. The CHAS is fielded, analyzed and managed by the Colorado Health Institute. It is funded by The Colorado Trust.
