State Health Watch;Dec2010, Vol. 17 Issue 12, p6
The article focuses on research showing that Medicaid enrollment and retention among adult population in the U.S. is worse than eligible children. According to Benjamin D. Sommers, an assistant professor at Harvard School of Public Health in Boston, Massachusetts, such gap should be addressed. It is noted that about 5 million uninsured children who are eligible for public health coverage are uninsured. Approaches used for the outreach project in Virginia are discussed.
