Medicaid, like other health coverage programs, helps to assure access to health care. Independent research shows that the vast majority of Medicaid beneficiaries - whether they are children or adults - report that they have a usual source of care and have had a well-child visit or a general doctor visit in the past 12 months. The research also shows that the experiences of Medicaid beneficiaries are similar to the experiences of people who have employer-sponsored insurance. People who have health coverage, either through Medicaid or through private coverage in the workplace, are better able to obtain needed care than are people who are uninsured.
