Oregon Studies the Value of Medicaid
“The study put to rest two incorrect arguments that persisted because of an absence of evidence. The first is that Medicaid doesn’t do anything for people, because it’s bad insurance or because the uninsured have other ways of getting care. The second is that Medicaid coverage saves money. It’s up to society to determine whether it’s worth the cost.”
