ABSTRACT
The article focuses on Medicaid access and perceptions as well as the need for navigating the health care system. Topics discussed include the flow of vital information impeded by patient's knowledge of the health care system and limited education as well as the suggestion for the creation of a patient navigator system that will monitor new entrees to the health care system. The need for patients and their families to assess their attitudes toward the health care system is also mentioned.
