Abstract

Most Medicaid beneficiaries nationally are enrolled in some form of managed care, and, with current budget pressure and health reform on the horizon, states are expected to increase their reliance on managed care to deliver services in their Medicaid programs.

This 50-state survey, conducted by the Kaiser Commission on Medicaid and the Uninsured and Health Management Associates, provides a comprehensive look at state Medicaid managed care programs, documenting their diversity, examining how states monitor access and quality, and exploring emerging efforts to improve care, including managed long-term care and initiatives targeted toward dual eligibles (abstract from: http://www.kff.org/medicaid/8220.cfm).
