Medicaid in Residential Care. Notes

09/01/2013

  1. Information on Medicaid participation is not available for 12 facilities and those cases were dropped from the analysis.

  2. The question wording from the facility questionnaire is "During the last 30 days, how many of the residents had some or all of their long-term care services paid by Medicaid?" and the question wording from the resident questionnaire is "During the last 30 days did [RESIDENT INITIALS] have any of (his/her) long-term care services at this facility paid by Medicaid?".

  3. The survey question asks "During the last 30 days did [RESIDENT INITIALS] have any of (his/her) long-term care services at this facility paid by Medicaid?".

  4. The survey questions used in the facility level analysis are "What is the average monthly base rate for a single individual living in a 1-bedroom apartment for a regular, non-Alzheimer's unit?" and "What is the average monthly base rate for a single individual living in a room designed for one person (for a regular, non-Alzheimer's unit)?".

  5. These means are only for the facilities that have these types of living quarters.

  6. The survey question asks "For last month, what was the total charge for [RESIDENT INITIALS] to live in this facility? Include the basic monthly charge and charges for any additional services.".

  7. Facilities that do not have these types of units are not included in the calculations for this analysis.

  8. Of the 13,358 Medicaid facilities, 158 (1.2 percent of all Medicaid facilities) are in states that do not use these Medicaid options to cover services in RCFs. These 158 facilities may have responded that they participate in Medicaid because Medicaid is paying for other state plan services, such as home health or private duty nursing.

  9. The survey question asked whether the resident receives any assistance to do the ADLs, including help from another person, special equipment, or both.
