Title:
   Differences in Payments for Child Visits to Office-Based Physicians: Private versus Medicaid Insurance, 2010 to 2015
Product type:
   Statistical Brief 504
MEPS component:
   Insurance Component
Publication date:
   August 15, 2017
Description:
   This Statistical Brief uses MEPS-HC data for each year from 2010 through 2015 to examine trends and differentials in total payments per visit for child visits to office-based physicians covered by Medicaid versus Private insurance (see 'Definitions'). In addition, data for 2014-15 were pooled in order to examine estimates of Medicaid/Private payment gaps by Census geographic region and by specialty type, which are two factors generally associated with the amount paid for office-based physician visits.
