Study: Copays don't reduce Medicaid non-urgent ED visits
from Health Leaders Media
Data from a 10-year study does not show any increase in the rate of Medicaid patients' visits to doctors' offices. A shortage of primary care physicians willing to accept Medicaid may be a factor. Slapping copayments on emergency department visits by Medicaid patients seeking non-urgent care does little or nothing to reduce the costly practice, research shows.
