A previous analysis of National Health Interview Survey data (1999 to 2009) found that 7% of Medicaid beneficiaries reported transportation as a barrier to accessing timely primary care treatment and even 0.6% of those with private coverage reported struggles with similar transportation barriers. As many states propose to scale back the Medicaid transportation benefit, it is important to note that no other barrier varied so greatly in prevalence between individuals with commercial insurance and those with Medicaid.
