CHAS Issue Brief: Medicaid in Colorado: How Enrollees Access and Use Health Care
January 23, 2013
This brief highlights findings from the 2011 Colorado Health Access Survey (CHAS) about who is covered by Medicaid in Colorado and how they access and use health services. The analysis shows that Coloradans covered by Medicaid have a lower utilization of most health services than those with commercial insurance. It also shows that most Medicaid enrollees have a usual source of care, but getting an appointment with a health care provider can still be a challenge.
