Health insurance reform is an important part of the national dialog. Concerns are raised constantly about limiting Medicaid expenditures. Yet in doing so, what would that mean for children enrolled in Medicaid? Perhaps there are focused strategies we can use to improve the quality and cost-effectiveness of the care Medicaid provides rather than simply pass reform that globally cuts Medicaid spending without focus on who really needs it the most (and children are certainly at the top of that list). This week we release three studies focused on Medicaid spending to better characterize how dollars for Medicaid are being used for children.
