Utah's Safe-to-Wait Project has reduced unnecessary use of hospital emergency departments by 55% in its first year by educating Medicaid recipients on costs and alternatives. Medicaid patients who make unnecessary ED trips get letters that emphasize the cost of such care, advise them about nearby urgent-care clinics and even restrict their access by requiring them to see a regular physician.
