Medicaid Coverage Does Not Equal Access to Care, Survey Says

The second annual Cover Michigan Survey, released by the Center for Healthcare Research & Transformation (CHRT), shows that people who lack health coverage are more likely to seek medical treatment in costlier care settings and less likely to have regular, preventive care. The survey of 1,000 Michigan adults also reveals that simply having health coverage does not guarantee access to care.
