Medicaid Coverage 'Substantially' Improves Access to Care: Study
Date:7/7/2011

ercent less likely to report being depressed.

The findings are published July 7 as a working paper (number 17190) on the website of the National Bureau of Economic Research. Support for the study was provided by the U.S. National Institute on Aging, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, the California Healthcare Foundation, and other foundations and government agencies.

"Some people wonder whether Medicaid coverage has any effect. The study findings make clear that it does. People reported that their physical and mental health were substantially better after a year of insurance coverage, and they were much less likely to have to borrow money or go into debt to pay for their care," co-principal investigator Amy Finkelstein, a professor of economics at MIT, said in the news release.

The researchers will follow the lottery participants for another year and directly measure health outcomes such as obesity, blood pressure, cholesterol and blood sugar control.

Under the Obama administration's Affordable Care Act, Medicaid coverage will be expanded to cover additional low-income adults in all states in 2014.
