  3. Note that we found some differences between the CMS-64 categories for 2008 and 2011. Some new categories were added to the CMS-64 in 2010 and 2011 that were not included in the CMS-64 in prior years. If the CMS categories change again in the future, it will be necessary to map the categories in the CMS-64 in the base and estimate year as closely as possible so that trends can be developed.

  4. Estimate the trend as Tt = (St/Sb)(1/(t-b)) . Where T is the trend, S is Medicaid spending per enrolled month from Step 4, t is current year, and b is base year.
