  1. Diverting managed care Medicaid patients from pediatric emergency department use.

    Article - En anglais

    Objective

    To evaluate the health outcomes of managed care Medicaid children with non-emergent conditions who were not authorized to be seen in the Pediatric Emergency Department (PED) by their primary care provider.

    Design

    Consecutive case surveillance from 6/29/92 to 2/2/93.

    Setting

    University based PED (17,500 visits/year) in inner city Baltimore.

    Participants

    Cases were MAC children denied authorization to be seen for non-emergent conditions in the PED.

    Age and complaint matched MAC children were selected from the university based Pediatric Ambulatory Center (PAC) and from non-emergent PED visits (PED-seen) in order to compare utilization rates after denial.

    Intervention

    The Maryland Access to Care (MAC) Medicaid program (started in 12/91) emphasizes primary care and appropriate health care utilization by incorporating the following elements of managed care : assignment to primary care provider, gatekeeping, mandatory enrollment and fee for service.

    Methods

    Consecutive case surveillance from 6/29/92 to 2/2/93 was used to evaluate the health outcomes of MAC children denied authorization for non-emergent care in a university based PED.

    One week following denial, a pediatric nurse practitioner contacted the patient's caretaker and the MAC provider to ascertain health outcome.
