Exploring the Growth of Medicaid Managed Care

This report presents information on managed care’s enrollment and spending. It explores the growth of enrollment in Medicaid Managed Care in the United States and the contributing factors. It also analyzes the fact that funding does not directly parallel enrollment, as the share of total Medicaid spending that went to managed care only grew from 15 percent to 37 percent between 1999 and 2012, despite enrollment growing from 63 percent to 89 percent during that same time period.

Do Managed Care Programs Covering Long-Term Services and Supports Reduce Waiting Lists for Home and Community-Based Services?

This paper examines whether there is evidence that MLTSS programs increase access to home and community-based services (HCBS). One theory states that MLTSS programs may reduce costs associated with the use of institutional services, thereby allowing states to expand HCBS services and reduce waiting lists. This brief uses this theory and examines changes in a state's HCBS waiting list as one way to measure access to HCBS.
