~ Do Children of Immigrants Make Differential Use of Public Health Insurance? Janet Currie The fraction of the U.S. population that is foreign born has risen dramati- cally over the past two decades from 4.7 percent in 1970 to 7.9 percent in 1990 (Banister 1994). First- and second-generation children of immigrants are the fastest-growing segment of the U.S. population under age 15; by 2010, it is estimated that 20 percent of school-aged children will be chil- dren of recent immigrants (Lamberg 1996). By 1997, l in every 6 children (12 million) were

Chapter 2 In Sickness and in Health: The Importance of Public Health Insurance Maria Torres had just lost Medicaid coverage for her two young sons. The program requires recipients to reapply for the program every six months. This time, Maria’s monthly earnings had ex- ceeded the state income cutoff for the program by $200. She imme- diately cut back on her hours as a domestic so that she would be able to qualify the next month. But four-year-old Roberto relies on medication to control his asthma and urgently needed to have his prescription renewed. Maria was

DiMasi and Paquette (2004) . . We find that, under universal public health insurance with actuarially-fair premiums, market efficiency can be obtained, along with increases in consumers’ surplus, as medical prices under insurance go below their spot sales equilibrium level This result is in line with the empirical finding of Duggan and Scott-Morton (2010, 2011) regarding the negative effect of Medicare-Part D on pharmaceutical prices. . In this case spot market sales are practically eliminated. The welfare maximizing policy encompasses a unique price and upper bound on

9 Does Public Health Insurance Reduce Labor Market Flexibility or Encourage the Underground Economy? Evidence from Spain and the United States Sara de la Rica and Thomas Lemieux The basic postulate that there is a trade-off between social protection and eco- nomic flexibility crucially relies on the premise that legislation aimed at en- hancing social protection imposes real constraints on the behavior of economic agents. This legislation must be enforced, however, for these constraints to be binding. In the realistic case where enforcement is imperfect, the

Abstract

Mental illnesses are prevalent in the United States and globally. Cost is a critical barrier to treatment receipt. We study the effects of the Affordable Care Act's recent expansion of Medicaid, a public insurance system for the poor in the U.S., on psychotropic prescription medications for mental illness. We estimate differences-in-differences models using administrative data on medications for which Medicaid was a third-party payer over the period 2011–2017. Our findings suggest that these expansions increased psychotropic prescriptions by 21.0%. We show that Medicaid, and not patients, financed these prescriptions. For states expanding Medicaid, the total cost of these prescriptions was $28.0 M by the second quarter of 2017. Expansion effects were experienced across most major mental illness categories and across states with different levels of patient need, system capacity, and expansion scope. We find no statistically significant evidence that Medicaid expansion reduced mental illness.
