Only about 5.5% of the currently uninsured who are eligible for Medicaid under expansion report having seen a mental health professional in the last year. However, according to the Kaiser Commission on Medicaid and the Uninsured, over 60% of adults with a diagnosable behavioral health disorder and 70 percent of children in need of treatment do not receive mental health services, and nearly 90 percent of people over age 12 with a substance use or dependence disorder did not receive specialty treatment for their illness. Lack of transportation is a particular problem for beneficiaries with mental illness, as they may be adverse to their medical care and unlikely to seek a means of transportation independently.
