Medicaid Managed Care for Persons with Disabilities: A Closer Look

This report, Medicaid Managed Care for Persons with Disabilities: A Closer Look, presents an overview of the findings and summarizes the results of the case studies of Medicaid managed care programs that enroll persons with disabilities in four states: Florida, Kentucky, Michigan, and New Mexico. This report also draws from the findings of the 1998 national survey of state practices (Publication #2114) and focus groups of low-income disabled individuals (Publication #2152). This report addresses the issue of how persons with disabilities fare under managed care. It describes ways that managed care is affecting overall health care delivery for some of our nation’s most vulnerable citizens and describes the lessons learned for policymakers who enroll – or plan to enroll – persons with disabilities in their managed care programs. A companion paper, Descriptions of Programs in Florida, Kentucky, Michigan, and New Mexico, provides in-depth descriptions of the four case studies.
