The comments follow calls for Mr Hunt''s department to intervene with the BHSA and Aintree to ensure measures are taken to make the famous race less lethal.
A spokeswoman for the racecourse said: The BHSA is reviewing all elements what happened in this year''s race to see whether any measures need to be put in place on the grounds of safety.
If ELE enrollees had previously failed to enroll in Medicaid because they have access to other private health insurance, we might observe few claims for core services, but relatively high use of prescription, vision, dental, and BHSA services among ELE children, acting as a "wraparound" to other coverage.
Previous work on the Medicaid Analytic eXtract informed our list of diagnosis and procedure codes used to identify beneficiaries using BHSA services.
For example, non-ELE children are more likely to be infants (Table 2), a group that uses inpatient, emergency room, and physician services more intensively than other children, while using fewer dental, vision, and BHSA services.
Use of "Wraparound" Services--Pharmacy, BHSA, Dental, Vision
Use of BHSA services was much less common, but, again, ELE enrollees were about half as likely to use any of these services relative to non-ELE enrollees in Louisiana.
Among those who filled prescriptions or accessed BHSA services, ELE enrollees tended to do so less intensively.
