  1. Fulltext. Rationing or rationalizing children's medical care : comparison of a medicaid HMO with fee-for-service care.

    Article - En anglais



    This paper examines how medical care obtained by children enrolled in a Medicaid health maintenance organization (HMO) differs from that obtained by similar children who receive care from fee-for-service Medicaid providers.


    In a randomized trial, some Medicaid households were assigned to remain in a traditional fee-to-service arrangement and others were randomly selected to join a Medicaid prepaid plan (an HMO).

    Participating households recorded data on children's health status and use of medical care.
