Massachusetts residents have largely been able to hang on to health insurance, despite the deep and lingering recession and widespread unemployment, according to a study released yesterday by the Urban Institute. Based on a survey last fall, the report concluded that 4.8% of Massachusetts adults, age 18 to 64, were uninsured, largely unchanged from a year earlier and still the lowest in the nation. A 2006 law extended subsidized coverage to thousands of low and moderate-income Massachusetts residents who previously did not qualify for assistance.
