This report by the United Way of West Virginia Health Care Access Project summarizes interviews with 101 WVCHIP and Medicaid families about their health care experiences in Kanawha, Clay, Boone and Putnam counties. The study found that, with the exception of dental care for adults, most families interviewed get the care they need when they need it. However after-hours and on weekends, many families don’t seem to know any alternative to getting care other than going to a hospital emergency room. The report includes recommendations.
