This report on ambulatory care (office, clinic visits and emergency visits) received by children enrolled in HUSKY A (Medicaid) finds that rates of children receiving well-child care in 2005 increased slightly over the previous year, though the overall rate continues to fall short of professional recommendations, federal goals for children in Medicaid, and HUSKY A contract requirements. Gaps in ambulatory care utilization persist among children of different racial/ethnic backgrounds.
