Young children covered by Medicaid managed care plans use health care services at the same rate as those covered by Medicaid fee-for-service plans, according to the results of a survey of 353 parents conducted by researchers at Montefiore Medical Center, Bronx, N.Y. Forty percent of parents were in managed care plans; the other 60 percent had fee-for-service Medicaid. The study was presented at the annual meeting of the Pediatric Academic Societies in New Orleans, May 1-5. For interviews during the meeting, contact the press room at (504) 670-8502 or 670-8508.
