Incorrect References Cited: In the Original Contribution entitled “Trends in Emergency Medicaid Expenditures for Recent and Undocumented Immigrants” published in the March 14, 2007, issue of JAMA (2007;297:1085-1092), 3 sentences cited incorrect references. On page 1090, within the Comment section, the second full sentence “In California, for example, a study in 2000 concluded that elimination of public funding for the prenatal care of undocumented immigrants would prove far more costly to taxpayers by substantially increasing low-birth weight, prematurity, and postnatal costs.33” should cite reference 32. The third sentence “Only 8 states have taken advantage of a 2002 “unborn child” option under the State Children's Health Insurance Program, which applies federal matching dollars to prenatal care coverage for undocumented women, while 5 additional states provide state funding for prenatal care regardless of immigration status.7,30” should cite reference 44 instead of 30. The fifth sentence “Immigrants, and particularly Hispanic immigrants, account for a disproportionate number of workplace injuries and fatalities in the United States.35” should cite “US Department of Labor. Occupational Safety and Health Administration's efforts to protect immigrant workers, statement of John L. Henshaw, Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupational Safety and Health before the Subcommittee on Employment, Safety and Training Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions, United States Senate, February 27, 2002. http://www.osha.gov/pls/oshaweb/owadisp.show_document?p_table=TESTIMONIES&p_id=286. Accessed November 2, 2006,” which is not listed among the article's references.
