Welcome to, gateway to all things data—exploration, visualizations, and surveys.

Hilltop specializes in working with Medicaid data. We maintain a secure, HIPAA-compliant data repository containing Maryland Medicaid and Medicare administrative data, hospital discharge data, nursing home assessment data (the federal Minimum Data Set), and assessment data for individuals receiving long-term services and supports.


Through our interactive DataPort, you can configure custom reports on Medicaid enrollment, long-term services and supports (LTSS) enrollment, LTSS services, Community First Choice (CFC) services, and nursing facilities, by coverage category, fiscal or calendar year, county or region of residence, and participant demographics. The DataPort can also generate custom reports on health plans participating in HealthChoice—Maryland’s Medicaid managed care program. The DataPort contains data going back several years which is updated monthly from Maryland Medicaid MMIS2. For the optimal viewing experience, please ensure third-party cookies are allowed.

A 50-State Survey of State Community Benefit Laws through the Lens of the ACA

The Hilltop Institute’s Community Benefit State Law Profiles (Profiles) present a comprehensive analysis of each state’s community benefit landscape as defined by its laws, regulations, tax exemptions, and, in some cases, policies and activities of state executive agencies. The Profiles organize these state-level legal frameworks by the major categories of federal community benefit requirements found in §9007 of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), §501(r) of the Internal Revenue Code.
