  1. An investigation of the medical care utilization of children with severe asthma according to their type of insurance.

    Article - En anglais

    A comparison of the medical care utilization of children with severe asthma according to insurance type was performed.

    Subjects were grouped by which type of insurance they had : capitated, fee for service, or Medicaid insurance.

    Medical records were coded into utilization categories, by presenting complaint, sick-or well-child visit, and if a generalist or specialist provided care during the visit.

    The Medicaid group had less specialist, sick-child care than the groups with capitated or fee for service insurance.

    The Medicaid group also had more emergency room visits than the other two groups.

    The three groups had a similar amount of total physician/clinic visits.

    Even though similar care was shown to be available for those with Medicaid insurance, this low resource group often uses expensive emergency room care.
