  • A review conducted by the UCLA Center for Health Policy Research found that a five-year experiment aimed at improving care for some of California’s most at-risk Medicaid patients resulted in fewer hospitalizations and ER visits. The researchers found that for every 1,000 people enrolled in California’s Whole Person Care pilot program, there were 45 fewer hospitalizations and 130 fewer ER visits when compared with a similar group of patients who were not in the program. In sum, the program saved taxpayers an estimated $383 per patient per year. (Article here)\]
