Medicaid in Residential Care. How Do Medicaid and Non-Medicaid Residential Care Facility Residents Differ?


One goal of this study is to highlight similarities and differences between Medicaid and non-Medicaid residents. This section presents data on important resident demographic characteristics, health and functional status, and service use.
