Study: Lack of health care causes death a day in Colorado

DENVER, Colorado ” A new report by a national health-care advocacy group says one person dies each day in Colorado because they don’t have health insurance.

The report by the New York-based Families USA is based on a national study by the Institute of Medicine of the National Academy of Sciences.

The report says people without health insurance often forgo checkups and other preventive care and are more likely to be diagnosed with a disease in the advanced stages. The study found that between 2000 and 2006, an estimated 2,100 adults in Colorado between 25 and 64 died because they didn’t have health insurance.
