Performance Improvement 2001. Impact of Welfare Reform on Medicaid Populations


This project will develop data and examine the impact of welfare reform on Medicaid eligibility, utilization and payments for various populations. It will study the effects of the following four changes: (1) de-linking Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC) and Medicaid eligibility, (2) terminating access to Medicaid for some legal immigrants because of lost eligibility for Supplementary Security Income (SSI), (3) barring most future legal immigrants from Medicaid, and (4) narrowing Medicaid eligibility for selected disabled children and disabled alcohol and substance abuse populations.
