Project Overview

Objective

Understand how Iowans access and use services through Medicaid and other programs; offer recommendations and technical assistance to spread successes in Iowa and improve service delivery throughout the state.

Project Motivation

Iowa’s Department of Human Services seeks to advance equitable access to care and improve the coordination of health care services across the state so that all Iowans benefit from improved health services.

Partners in Progress

The Harkin Institute

Prepared For

In support of Iowa Department of Human Services, Mathematica is conducting an evaluation of community-based behavioral services for health, disability, and aging needs to understand how Iowans access and use services through Medicaid and other programs.
We will assess the current Medicaid waiver structure, how people access community-based services through Medicaid and other programs, and barriers and facilitators of transitions from institutions to community based settings. From the evaluation, our team will prepare a set of recommendations and menu of technical assistance activities for Iowa DHS’ consideration. These recommendations may include successes in Iowa that could be spread more broadly across the state, as well as opportunities to improve service delivery throughout the state.
