Medicaid Disenrollment: Intrastate Emergency Department Impact
The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government.
Read our disclaimer for details.
We will obtain data from the robust Agency for Healthcare Reimbursement and Quality (AHRQ) Healthcare Utilization Project (HCUP), as well as from the State of Tennessee. If our hypotheses are true, such data will provide strong evidence that Medicaid disenrollment has a negetive health impact on uninsured populations. The data may also provide evidence for increased public funding of safety-net EDs after Medicaid disenrollment.
