The Kaiser Commission on Medicaid and the Uninsured
Jack Meyer, PhD
Using 2007 Arizona Medicaid claims data, HMA compared the utilization patterns and clinical conditions of uninsured adults without dependent children or “childless adults” with low-income parents and non-elderly adults in Medicaid. The study will help state Medicaid programs better understand and prepare for the health care use and needs of the millions of uninsured childless adults who will be newly eligible for Medicaid in 2014.
