  • Survey: Medicaid Enrollees Report Lower Financial Burden Than Privately Insured Fierce Healthcare by Paige Minemyer—People enrolled in Medicaid plans have similar care access levels to people with private insurance and report an easier time paying medical bills than those people, according to a new survey. The Commonwealth Fund's Biennial Health Insurance Survey polled a representative sample of 6,005 American adults and found that Medicaid enrollees have significantly better access to care and reduced financial burdens compared to the uninsured.
