This report on racial and ethnic disparities in the use of HUSKY A (Medicaid) services by children in 2005 finds that African-American children were less likely than White children to have well-child care or other outpatient care. Among children with asthma, Hispanic and African-American children are more likely to rely on emergency departments for care and less likely to receive timely follow-up care.
