This study analyzes the effect of age, ethnicity, and citizenship status on women's access to reproductive health care services via public assistance, private, and/or employer-based health care coverage. The study predicted that adult women of reproductive age have low access to reproductive health care coverage. The study also predicted that adult Hispanic women of reproductive age are more likely to access reproductive health care via public assistance programs such as Medicaid as opposed to other sources of health care coverage. Lastly, the study predicted that undocumented adult Hispanic women of reproductive age are more likely to report low access to health care coverage, including access to reproductive health care than adult Hispanic women of reproductive age who are permanent residents or citizens. The results of this study showed a significant relationship between access to health care coverage and age, ethnicity and citizenship status.
