This report to the Medicaid and CHIP Payment and Access Commission (MAPCAC) was prepared to support MACPACs June 2012 Report to the Congress on Medicaid and CHIP. The report presents national findings on access to care for non-elderly Medicaid adults using measures from two national household surveysthe National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) and the Household Component of the Medical Expenditure Panel Survey (MEPS). These estimates give a national picture of how access to care for non-elderly adults enrolled in Medicaid compares to that of adults with ESI and uninsured adults, building on prior reports and analyses.
