Abstract
This article examines the effect of parents Medicaid status on the use of preventivehealth services by young children. Using datafrom the 1996 Medical Expenditure PanelSurvey (MEPS), we analyzed a logit modelfor receipt of any well-child visits (WCVs) thatcompared three groups of low-income chil-dren. The three groups, defined by the jointinsurance status of children and their par-ents, involved Medicaid pairs (both the childand the parent had Medicaid throughout theyear), mixed pairs (the child had Medicaidand the parent was uninsured), and unin-sured pairs (both child and parent were unin-sured).
