Survey Reveals Health Insurance and Access to Care Not So Closely Linked
Date:3/8/2010

evealed that many low income urban dwellers had fewer problems accessing care than all but high income suburban dwellers – potentially reflecting the greater availability of health care "safety net" providers in urban areas.  Residents in rural communities and small towns reported more problems with access to care.

"Rather than a simple count of who has health insurance and who doesn't, we wanted to get a clearer picture of the people behind the statistics," says Marianne Udow-Philips, director of the Center for Healthcare Transformation and Research.  "And we wanted to test the connection between health insurance and access to health care."

The survey also found that many Medicaid/Healthy Kids recipients had difficulty finding providers of care. There was a significant difference between those with Medicaid/HealthyKids coverage and those with MiChild coverage on this measure.  While 35 percent of those with Medicaid/HealthyKids coverage reported difficulties finding providers who accepted their coverage, only 12 percent of those with MiChild coverage reported the same problem.  

The survey also tested self perceptions of health.  "We wanted to see if people's health insurance status affected their perceptions of their own health," says Udow-Philips.
