Abstract:Children with asthma use significantly more health services (and incur significantly more costs) than other children using services, attributable largely to asthma care. The majority of all health care costs for children with asthma were for nonasthma services. Urgent care visits and hospitalizations are less important components of asthma costs in this managed care organization than has been found in other national studies.
