Who Enrolls in Medicaid Managed Care Programs that Cover Long-Term Services and Supports? Implications of Enrollee Diversity for a National Cross-State Evaluation
U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, Center for Medicaid and CHIP Services
This issue brief supports the national evaluation of Medicaid Section 1115 demonstrations by describing the diversity of the beneficiary groups enrolled in 35 MLTSS programs operating in 23 states as of July 2016. Because beneficiary diversity can affect a range of health, service use, cost, and quality outcomes, the national cross-state evaluation will need to account for this variation when comparing the performance of MLTSS to fee-for-service (FFS) delivery systems.
