    Objectives

    This study identified public hospital patients'preferences under managed care and health reform.

    Methods

    A cross-sectional survey of 348 ambulatory public hospital patients was conducted.

    Results

    Patients reported a high degree of loyalty to the public hospital given several hypothetical reform scenarios.

    Those patients who stated they would remain at the hospital increased (from 74.2% to 85.5%) when care elsewhere required copayment for medications and physician visits.

    Conclusions

    Patients at one public hospital reported a high likelihood of remaining in the public system, and this likelihood increased when copayment for services was required elsewhere.
