Effect of Medicaid expansion on health insurance coverage and access to care among adults with depression.
This quasi-experimental study sought to determine the relationship between Medicaid expansion and various health and financial outcomes among low-income adults with depression. The investigators found that Medicaid expansion was associated with a significant reduction in the proportion of adults with depression who lacked health insurance. Medicaid expansion was also associated with significant reductions in delaying care and medications because of cost.
