Medicaid and Long-Term Care: Recent Publications Illuminate Key Policy Issues
With recent policy debates about the future of Medicaid, the Foundation’s Kaiser Commission on Medicaid and the Uninsured has created a resource page of recent publications that address key policy issues when examining Medicaid’s role for high cost populations and in long-term care. Of particular interest are a report profiling six Medicaid populations with serious health needs resulting in high costs for the program and a recent analysis showing more than half (52%) of Medicaid spending goes towards all the care (LTC and acute services) of beneficiaries who use long-term care services.
