FB: “Medicaid has been shown to reduce access to health care and recipients of the program may receive worse care in comparison to those with private insurance, according to a report from the Heritage Foundation.
According to the data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Center for Health Statistics, in 2013 there were 68.9 percent of physicians that accepted new Medicaid patients while 84.7 percent accepted new privately insured patients.”

“The research also finds that patients with Medicaid coverage may receive less preventive care such as Pap tests and clinical breast exams than those with private coverage. Other studies find that Medicaid patients with coronary artery bypass surgery or those with cancer had worse outcomes than those with private insurance.”

The report also found even fewer doctors accepting the coverage.
