Hospital visits through Medicaid

The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services collects data on patients under 18 years of age who visited the hospital through Medicaid. This dataset includes information about the number of these visits that were to the Emergency Room, as well as the number of visits that were related to Asthma or Diabetes.
