New Medicare-Medicaid Enrollees in Maryland: Prior Medicare and Medicaid Resource Use

February 22, 2012

This report describes and analyzes chronic disease patterns and health care expenditures of persons in Maryland who in 2008 began to receive coverage from both Medicare and Medicaid (Medicare-Medicaid enrollees). The analysis focuses on disease and expenditure patterns in the year before these individuals, most of whom had been enrolled in Medicare alone or Medicaid alone, became enrollees in both programs. Examining health status and expenditures of individuals before their eligibility for both programs can provide a better understanding of the characteristics associated with simultaneous enrollment in Medicare and Medicaid.

Also under Task 20 of CMS Contract HHSM-500-2005-00026I/Task Order HHSM-500-T0004, awarded by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services to Thomson Reuters (Healthcare) Inc., Hilltop prepared Pathways to Medicare-Medicaid Eligibility: A Literature Review and New Medicare-Medicaid Enrollees in Maryland: Demographic and Programmatic Characteristics.
