JADA September 2021

Background. Oral health care use remains low among adult Medicaid recipients, despite the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act’s expansion increasing access to care in many states. It remains unclear the extent to which low use reflects either low demand for care or barriers to accessing care. The authors aimed to examine factors associated with low oral health care use among adults enrolled in Medicaid.

Keywords. Medicaid; health policy; care use.
