The Medicaid program, a joint federal-state program that finances health insurance coverage for certain categories of low-income individuals, is an important source of health care coverage for about 67 million beneficiaries. As Medicaid enrollment and spending have increased significantly over the past decade, so too has statesäó» use of managed care to provide services to Medicaid beneficiaries, and nearly all states enroll some Medicaid beneficiaries in a form of managed care. Within some general requirements set out by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), the federal agency responsible for overseeing the Medicaid program, states have broad flexibility to implement Medicaid managed care programs. As a result, states vary widely in terms of the scope of services they provide and the populations they enroll in managed care. States also vary in their use of managed care for other reasons, such as differences in the availability of certain providers or the concentration of program beneficiaries that live in urban or rural areas. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) of 2010 requires that all states expand eligibility for Medicaid to nonelderly individuals whose income does not exceed 133% of the federal poverty level (FPL); this is estimated to result in the enrollment of an additional 7 million individuals in 2014. This report describe statesäó» use of Medicaid managed care, including the type of managed care arrangements they have in place, and their enrollment of populations with complex health care needs. Figures and tables. This is a print on demand report.
