KFF/CSHSC-Physician Willingness and Resources to Serve More Medicaid Patients: Perspectives from Primary Care Physicians

Bookmark and Share

This issue brief attempts to assess how primary care physicians (PCPs) will respond to the Medicaid expansion in 2014 under health reform. The increase in the number of people (about 32 million) with health coverage is expected to intensify competition among patients and payers for primary care resources.

The brief analyzes data from a CSHSC nationally representative survey of physicians to assess which adult-care PCPs are most likely to respond to health reform’s changes by serving additional Medicaid beneficiaries.
