This study aimed to determine whether insurance status at diagnosis influences CML patient outcomes. The SEER database was used to identify adult patients diagnosed with CML between 2007-2012. Among patients aged 15 to 64 years, insurance status was associated with OS: being uninsured or having Medicaid was associated with worse 5-year OS. Both uninsured and Medicaid patients also had an increased hazard of death in comparison with insured patients. For patients who were 65 years or older, insurance had less of an impact on OS, with similar 5-year OS rates for patients with Medicaid and those with other insurance.
