Trends in California Physicians' Participation in Medicaid (2014)
Principal Investigator: Andy Bindman, MD, Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality
Co-Principal Investigator: Janet Coffman, PhD, MPP, MA, University of California, San Francisco
The goal of this project is to inform state and federal policy-makers as they evaluate the impact of the ACA's Medicaid expansion and consider strategies aimed at increasing physician participation in Medicaid. In collaboration with the California Medical Board, the researchers will administer surveys on Medicaid participation to California physicians whose licenses are due for renewal in June and July of 2015. Survey questions will be identical to those included in a previous survey administered by the research team in 2011 and 2013, with the addition of new questions about California Medicaid beneficiaries' access to physicians. The researchers will compare results from the 2015 survey to results from the earlier surveys, analyzing trends across all physicians, as well as among a cohort that completed the survey in all three years.
