Medicaid Provides Needed Access to Care for Children and Families

Research shows that children and parents who rely on Medicaid for health care receive coverage that is comparable to private insurance and far better than the access accorded uninsured families. Children covered by Medicaid and those with private insurance access health care services across a variety of measures at comparable rates, while children who are uninsured access health services at lower rates.
