Welfare recipients are hospitalized at a much higher rate than members of the general New York City population, who are unlikely to have the health problems common among this group.

This variation in use level is so large that 8 percent of all users account for nearly half of all Medicaid-paid hospital days and cost. 244 pp. Ref.
