To get or to skip care? Coverage makes the difference


Not surprisingly, many uninsured adults either do not get or postpone care they need. But a recent Kaiser/Commonwealth Fund survey suggests that adults who receive Medicaid benefits also skip or put off care — and that, because of expense, adult Medicaid patients are less likely to fill prescriptions than those without insurance — despite the fact that Medicaid plans offer at least some pharmacy coverage.
