Abstract

This article examines the extent to which the costs of formal health care are shifted from third-party payers to the patient and his or her family, especially during the transition to the community after discharge from a state hospital. Findings indicate that patients residing in the community are as likely to receive some care as their counterparts in institutions, but are at higher risk for uncovered care. Uncovered care is move likely to manifest as an unmet need for patients who have been recently discharged, especially for racial minorities, and as an out-of-pocket expense for patients who are established in the community.
