  1. The impact of health insurance status on adolescents'utilization of school-based clinic services : implications for health care reform.

    Article - En anglais

    Purpose 

    1) To examine variations among students with different health insurance coverage in their use of school-based clinics (SBCs), reasons for not receiving health care when needed, and reasons for using or not using SBCs, and 2) to determine if insurance status is a significant factor in predicting SBC use, after controlling for demographic variables and health status.

    Methods 

    Confidential questionnaires were administered to 2,860 adolescents attending 3 urban high schools with on-site SBCs.

    Chi-square and multiple logistic regression analyses were used to assess differences among insurance groups in patterns of SBC use and reasons for clinic use/nonuse.

    Results 

    Students with private insurance or HMO coverage had the highest rates of SBC utilization (67% & 66%) and students without health insurance and with Medicaid had the lowest (57% & 59%) (p<0.01).

    While there was no difference among adolescents according to insurance group membership in their use of SBC medical services, a significantly higher proportion of students with Medicaid coverage used SBC mental health services.

    Students without health insurance were less likely to receive health care from any source when it was needed.

    After controlling for demographic variables and health status, no insurance factors remained significant.

    Conclusions 

    SBC users represent a variety of insurance groups.
