Medicaid children. A vulnerable cohort.

Abstract

Vulnerable populations face special problems in dealing with the complexities of our fragmented health care delivery system, creating impediments to timely and effective care. Persistent differences in health status, utilization and outcomes exist among racial/ethnic groups, among age groups and between the sexes. Children are one specific cohort that serves as an unfortunate example of vulnerability within this system. This paper reviews some of the barriers that exist in access to care for Medicaid children.
