  • Adjusted results from multivariate testing are shown on the second row for each variable.

    Multivariate models include variables from Table 3 (CSHCN status, age, race, gender, single household, household size, income, education, employment, and insurance type [for variables other than prior insurance]).

    P values represent main effects of CSHCN

  • * P ≤ .05

  • ** P ≤ .01

  • *** P ≤ .001).

  • For clarity of analysis, the three prior insurance categories were private/other (private employer-sponsored health insurance + private other + other, from Table 4), Medicaid, and none. P values represent Medicaid versus none or private versus none.
