Medicaid-Financed Institutional Services: Characteristics of Nursing Home and ICF/IID Residents and Their Patterns of Care. IV. Policy Implications and Directions for Future Research


This study provided detailed information across 45 states and the District of Columbia on users of nursing home and ICF/IID care services in Medicaid FFS programs using 2006-2007 MAX data. Wenzlow et al. (2008) conducted a similar study using 2001-2002 data, but since that time states have accelerated their efforts to develop their HCBS programs. This study analyzed the characteristics of residents receiving care in nursing homes and specialized institutions for developmentally disabled adults (ICFs/IID). It also examined changes in the population of nursing home residents from 2001-2002 to 2006-2007.
