Using Medicaid to Cover Services for Elderly Persons in Residential Care Settings: State Policy Maker and Stakeholder Views in Six States. III. Summary of Interviews


In addition to consulting with eleven state staff and policy makers regarding the technical details of the state's programs, we also interviewed four of them. In addition, we interviewed eleven stakeholders, including representatives of residential care provider associations, residential care providers, consumer advocates, the state ombudsman program, aging service providers, and a county agency that administers the state's home and community services programs.

The interviews focused on respondents' views about several key areas and issues. This section summarizes their views and provides illustrative examples of their responses. These comments are not verbatim quotes, but have been paraphrased to protect the respondents' anonymity and edited for brevity. A list of information sources for the state description and the individuals interviewed can be found at the end of this summary.
