Medicaid Long-Term Services and Supports in Maryland: The Older Adults Waiver, FY 2006 to FY 2009. A Chart Book.
This series of chart books, entitled Medicaid Long-Term Supports and Services in Maryland, summarizes demographic, service utilization, and expenditure data for state fiscal years 2006 through 2009 on four Maryland Medicaid waiver programs—the Older Adults Waiver, the Living at Home Waiver, the Autism Waiver, and the Medical Day Care Services Waiver—and on nursing facility utilization among Maryland Medicaid recipients. These chart books, prepared for the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, are intended to monitor trends in these programs. Hilltop updates the chart books annually. The Older Adults Waiver Chart Book provides information on Maryland Medicaid participants who receive services through this program, which enables low-income individuals aged 50 years and older to remain in a community setting even though, because of their health status, they are eligible for placement in a long-term care facility. The Older Adults Waiver is administered by the Maryland Department of Aging.
