The sample was composed of 263 uninsured, 260 Medicaid recipients, and 270 insured non-Medicaid. 13 month survey Consisted of 983 participated that registered in the INQL between June 1, 2007 and March 31, Of to the 983 participants, 393 were NRT recipients and 590 were non-recipients. The sample was composed of 328 uninsured, 328 Medicaid recipients, and 327 insured non-Medicaid.
