Psychological distress and enrollment in Medicaid.
Adults with poor mental health may want and need insurance to obtain care, but symptoms may impede enrollment into public health insurance. The enrollment response to Medicaid expansions prior to the Affordable Care Act was stronger for adults symptomatic of psychological distress compared with adults without distress and compared to adults with chronic physical health problems.

Do medical homes offer improved diabetes care for Medicaid enrollees with co-occurring schizophrenia?
The purpose of this study was to determine whether Medicaid recipients with co-occurring diabetes and schizophrenia that are medical-home-enrolled are more likely to receive guideline-concordant diabetes care than those who are not medical-home-enrolled, controlling for confounders. The study concluded that medical-home enrollment is generally associated with greater likelihood of receiving guideline-concordant diabetes care for Medicaid enrollees with diabetes and schizophrenia.
