It is important to understand patterns and predictors of initiation and engagement in treatment for Medicaid-covered individuals with substance use disorders because Medicaid is a major source of payment for addiction treatment in the United States. Our analysis examined similarities and differences in predictors between adults and adolescents.
States are pursuing Section 1115 Medicaid demonstration waiver authority to apply community engagement (CE) requirements (eg, participation in work, volunteer activities, or training) to beneficiaries deemed able-bodied as a condition of coverage. Understanding the size and characteristics of the populations included in these requirements can help inform policy initiatives and anticipate effects.
Some policy makers are proposing Medicaid work or community engagement requirements. Using national data, we found that 13.9 percent of new, nonelderly adult Medicaid beneficiaries in 2015-16 had experienced a decline in health before enrollment, and a similar percentage had had jobs that ended before they enrolled. These findings highlight the need for careful design of work requirement policies.
Medicaid programs are increasingly adopting incentive programs to improve health behaviors among beneficiaries. There is limited evidence on what incentives are being offered to Medicaid beneficiaries, how programs are engaging beneficiaries, and how programs are evaluated. In 2017-18 we synthesized available information on these programs and interviewed eighty policy stakeholders to identify the rationale behind key program design decisions and stakeholders' recommendations for beneficiary engagement and p...
It is unclear whether the Medicaid expansion under the Affordable Care Act had an effect on coverage in states with relatively generous pre-expansion Medicaid eligibility levels. We examined the effect of the Medicaid expansions on Medicaid coverage in 4 generous states: New York, Vermont, Massachusetts, and Delaware.
The review aimed to 1) explore the constituents of nurse-patient therapeutic engagement on acute mental health wards; 2) map factors that influence engagement to the Theoretical Domains Framework and 3) integrate results into a conceptual model of engagement to inform the development of interventions to improve engagement.
Physician engagement has become a key metric for healthcare leadership and is associated with better healthcare outcomes. However, engagement tends to be low and difficult to measure and improve. This study sought to efficiently characterize the professional cultural dynamics between physicians and administrators at an academic hospital and how those dynamics affect physician engagement.
Medicaid is the single largest source of health care coverage for people living with HIV (PLWH) in the United States. Therefore, high-quality HIV care and associated viral suppression among Medicaid beneficiaries have the potential to greatly impact the HIV epidemic. The HIV Health Improvement Affinity Group (HHIAG) supported state efforts to improve health outcomes for PLWH enrolled in Medicaid through new or enhanced collaborations between state public health departments and state Medicaid agencies.
To determine the impact of a motivational interviewing (MI) training designed to improve rehabilitation counselors' counseling skills to promote clients' engagement in return-to-work behaviors and to establish strong working alliance.
Physical abuse and neglect affect a significant number of children in the United States. The 2014 Medicaid expansion, in which several states opted to expand their Medicaid programs, is associated with parental financial stability and access to mental health care.
States and policymakers have expressed a strong interest in using Medicaid to address social determinants of health (SDOH). While this approach holds promise for improving outcomes and reducing costs, using Medicaid to pay for services outside the medical system creates challenges. This article examines efforts to address SDOH in Oregon, which, as part of its 2012 Medicaid waiver, incorporated health-related services that lacked billing or encounter codes and were not included in Oregon's Medicaid state pla...
It is estimated that the number of individuals living with dementia worldwide will increase from 50 million in 2017 to 152 million by 2050. Assistive technology has been recognized as a promising tool to improve the lives of persons living with memory loss and their caregivers. The use of assistive technology in dementia care is expanding, although it is most often intended to manage care and promote safety. There is a lack of assistive technology designed to aid persons with memory loss in participating in...
Michigan expanded Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) through a federal waiver that permitted state-mandated features, including an emphasis on primary care. We investigated the factors associated with Michigan primary care providers (PCPs)' decision to accept new Medicaid patients under Medicaid expansion.
Medicine didn't get everything it needed from lawmakers for Medicaid, including TMA's biggest and boldest ask of the 2019 session. Still, progress TMA achieved on managed care reform and other facets of Medicaid will advance physicians' efforts to care for the most vulnerable Texans.
To describe the extent and implications of "churn" between different Medicaid eligibility classifications in a pediatric population: (1) aged, blind, and disabled (ABD) Medicaid eligibility, determined by disability status and family income; and (2) Healthy Start Medicaid eligibility, determined by family income alone.
North Carolina remains one of several states that has not expanded Medicaid eligibility criteria to cover all low-income adults, leading to the so-called Medicaid gap, a population ineligible for Medicaid and too poor for premium subsidies through the federal Health Insurance Marketplace. Our objective was to characterize the health care access and health status of the Medicaid gap population in North Carolina. We combined annual data from the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance Survey (2013-2016). Responde...
Limited access to care can negatively affect population health, which is particularly concerning for individuals of lower socioeconomic status. Shortages of US health care providers in areas that predominantly serve Medicaid enrollees contribute to a lack of access. The Ohio Medicaid Technical Assistance and Policy Program Healthcare Access Initiative was designed as a workforce development initiative to train and deploy community health workers (CHWs). The authors conducted 55 key informant interviews with...
Identifying and effectively treating individuals with substance use disorders (SUDs) is an important priority for state Medicaid programs, given the enormous toll that SUDs take on individuals, their families, and their communities. In this paper, we describe how the Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS) measure "Identification of Alcohol and Other Drug Services" can be used, along with eligible population prevalence rates, to expand states' ability to track how well their Medicaid progr...
Patient engagement practices are increasingly incorporated in health research, governance, and care. More recently, a large number of evaluation tools and metrics have been developed to support engagement evaluation. This growing interest in evaluation reflects a maturation of the patient engagement field, moving from a "craft" to a reflective "art and science," with more explicit expected benefits and risks, better understood conditions for success and failure, and increasingly rigorous evaluation instrume...
Medicaid is an important source of insurance coverage for those with mental health (MH) disorders in the United States. Although disruptions in Medicaid coverage are common, little is known about the dynamic relationship between Medicaid disenrollment and MH care utilization.
Access to dermatologists by Medicaid-insured patients is low. Higher clinic non-attendance (NA) among Medicaid-insured patients may impact provider decisions to accept these patients.
North Carolina's upcoming shift to Medicaid managed care will present the opportunity to build on the current quality of services in a system that is focused on whole-person treatment. WellCare of North Carolina, Inc. intends to use innovative approaches that combine aspects of successful programs in other states, tailored to fit North Carolina and improve the quality of care.
Low-income smokers experience greater difficulty in quitting smoking than do other smokers. Providing financial incentives for treatment engagement increases smoking cessation success. This study models the cost-effectiveness of varying levels of financial incentives to maximise return on investment (ROI) for engaging low-income Medicaid recipients who smoke to take calls from a tobacco quit line.
Medicaid expansion has led to unique opportunities for sexually transmitted disease (STD) clinics to improve the sustainability of services by billing insurance. We evaluated changes in patient visits after the implementation of insurance billing at a STD clinic in a Medicaid expansion state.
