Medicaid Managed Care for Persons with Disabilities: Case Studies of Programs in Florida, Kentucky, Michigan and New Mexico
This report provides in-depth descriptions of the case studies in these states. The case studies are based on interviews conducted in the fall of 1998 with state officials, provider and plan representatives, and advocates. This report provides an overview of each state’s Medicaid program, followed by an analysis of the structure and impact of various program features, such as whether capitated and/or PCCM programs are offered; whether the programs are mandatory or voluntary for people with disabilities; whether disabled people are covered by mainstream managed care or by a separate specialized program; and whether behavioral health is offered under a managed arrangement or an alternative approach. (Publication #2163) A companion paper, A Closer Look (Publication #2179), presents an overview of the findings and summarizes the results of the case studies.
