Study: Medicaid Has Positive Impact on Recipients

Medicaid coverage has a positive effect on recipients – or so says a new study released last week. 

 Working with Harvard, MIT, and Oregon state officials, the National Bureau of Economic Research examined the impact of Medicaid coverage on a limited group of uninsured, low-income Oregon adults who were chosen by lottery to receive Medicaid coverage even though they did not meet the state’s Medicaid eligibility criteria.  The study examined the utilization of health services by these individuals, their out-of-pocket expenditures and medical debt, and their self-report physical and mental health status.
