Cost of Care for Medicaid-Enrolled Children with Selected Disabilities


The purpose of this study is to estimate and compare costs of care for children with 11 selected chronic conditions, to compare these costs with costs of care for children without any of these conditions, and to identify whether selected demographic variables are associated with cost variation. The focus was on Medicaid-enrolled children with chronic conditions because this population presents particular challenges to states as they consider implementing managed care programs for the Medicaid population and because a disproportionate number of children in Medicaid have chronic health conditions.
