The following chapter presents estimates of the resources that would be needed to increase the health services utilization of uninsured children and adults to the levels used by their insured counterparts. These estimates of resource demands will be used in the concluding chapter, along with the estimates of the value of forgone healthy life years presented in this chapter, to consider the costeffectiveness of providing health insurance to those currently uninsured.
