    Logistic regression analysis, controlling for key background variables and diagnosis, was used to study the relationship between insurance and care.

    Results 

    At first admission, 233 (44%) of the patients had no insurance, 78 (15%) had Medicaid or Medicare, 203 (39%) had private insurance, eight (1.5%) were insured by the Veterans Administration, and the insurance status of three (1.5%) was unknown.

    Having private insurance increased the likelihood of having received previous mental health treatment (psychotherapy specifically), being admitted voluntarily, being hospitalized in a community hospital rather than a public hospital, and being hospitalized within 3 months of onset of psychosis.
