December 2007
State Health Watch;Dec2007, Vol. 14 Issue 12, p8
The article discusses a study which found that expansion of Medicaid and the State Children's Health Insurance Program through Medicaid health plans is an effective way to cover the uninsured in the U.S. Conducted for the Association for Community Affiliated Plans, the study found that states are better served to cover uninsured individuals by building on a platform of Medicaid managed care plans already operating in their states rather than subsidizing purchase of commercial health insurance through tax credits or other incentives for poor people.
