Now on Kaiser Health News’ blog, Jay Hancock reports on the study about the health law's coverage for young adults: “Expanded coverage for young adults under the Affordable Care Act substantially raised inpatient hospital visits related to mental health, finds a new study by researchers at Indiana and Purdue universities. That looks like good news: Better access to care for a population with higher-than-average levels of mental illness that too often endangers them and people nearby” (Hancock, 6/11).
Also on Capsules, you can watch Kaiser Health News' Julie Rovner and Judy Woodruff on PBS NewsHour discuss where Medicaid expansion stands in states across the country (6/11). Check out what else is on the blog.
