Avoidable Hospitalizations Among Medicaid Recipients in Washington State

Open Publication PDF

Steve Lerch - August 2002

Physicians and researchers have identified several diseases and health conditions for which timely and effective outpatient health care services, such as physician office visits, can often prevent hospitalizations. This study examines whether these “avoidable hospitalizations” are a significant issue for the Washington State Medicaid program and, if so, whether it is possible to reduce them and in turn reduce state health care expenditures.
