A Profile of Medicaid Institutional and Community-Based Long-Term Care Service Use and Expenditures Among the Aged and Disabled Using MAX 2002


This report examines how person-level data in the Medicaid Analytic eXtract (MAX) data system can be used to better understand Medicaid long-term care service use and expenditures, and to evaluate the utility of MAX data for further study of long-term care. In the analysis, the authors: compare expenditure and utilization-based measures of the balance of institutional and community-based long-term care services; examine Medicaid long-term care expenditures and utilization for two key groups of enrollees, young disabled enrollees and enrollees ages 65 and older; decompose community-based long-term care service expenditures by type of service; and summarize other Medicaid services used and costs incurred by long-term care users.
