Innovative State Strategies to Insure Children. Overview of Medicaid Enrollment

07/08/2004

The HCFA(now known as CMS)-2082 is an annual hard-copy report designed to collect State-reported statistical summary data on eligibles, recipients, services, and expenditures during a Federal fiscal year (i.e., October l through September 30). Medicaid eligibles are defined as individuals who have signed up for, but have not necessarily used, services. Recipients, on the other hand, have actually used the services available. The data reported for a given year represent recipients of service and the amount of payments for claims adjudicated during the year. The data reflect bills adjudicated during the year rather than the services used during the year. States summarize and report the data processed through their own Medicaid claims processing and payment operations unless they opt to participate in the Medicaid Statistical Information System (MSIS) project.
