Determinants of health insurance ownership in Jordan

The peer-reviewed article assesses the proportion of the population covered by any health insurance and their social determinants drawing from the Jordan population and family health survey.

The study found that more than one-quarter of the population in Jordan were not insured.

Important predictors include marital status and socioeconomic factors such as wealth and education as well as internet access and geographical location. The associations differed by sex and urbanity for certain variables. Efforts to decrease disparities in insurance coverage with focus on minimizing socioeconomic and geographical disparities to promote equity in terms of healthcare services may help achieve universal coverage with health insurance.
