This article discusses the impact of the recession on public health care coverage and addresses implications for families, providers, and state and federal policy.
These are tough economic times. Millions of Americans have seen their jobs disappear, incomes decline, and health care coverage become increasingly remote. Many have sought public coverage from the states through Medicaid, but Medicaid's ability to fill the gap is becoming increasingly constrained, as state revenues decline and states turn to Washington for help in paying their share of the Medicaid bill. What are the implications of this cycle for families, for providers, and for state and federal policy? How does the recession jeopardize health care? (Author)
