Is Medicaid Worse than Being Uninsured?

Scott Gottlieb wrote that it is this week in the WSJ. His conclusion is not a reasonable interpretation of the research evidence because association is not causation. Austin Frakt does a nice job running through the arguments, and discussing the papers Gottlieb noted. There are all sorts of problems and issues with Medicaid, but saying that people would be better off uninsured than covered by Medicaid is an incorrect interpretation of the research.
