Using annual report data from states to the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), the results show that between 1995 and 2002, national Medicaid waiver-funded residential care participants increased almost threefold to 120,000 and expeditures more than quadrupled to $2.3 billion. However, Medicaid waiver program participation and spending varied considerably by state, by target population, and by level of care.
