Medicaid consumersí views on health and control of health

Allyson G Hall, Gail Young, Keva Thompson, Kimberly Elliott, Lilliana Bell, Rada K Dagher.

Abstract
Medicaid enrollees in the United States are among the poorest and sickest of the population. Meeting their health needs can be difficult in part due to their vulnerability. Little is known about how Medicaid beneficiaries view their health, the health care delivery system, or their own ability to participate in activities or actions that would help them control or improve their health. This qualitative study used a combination of individual telephone interviews and in-person focus groups to explore Medicaid beneficiariesí views of their health. Beneficiaries described health as a life experience, as a function or action, and with respect to the health care system. The ability to control health was associated with the availability of resources, the influence of family and friends, and the role of God and prayer.

Key words: Medicaid beneficiaries, definition of health, control of health, qualitative research, USA
