Surprising findings on expenditures for Medicaid 'Buy-In' participants

February 2010
State Health Watch;Feb2010, Vol. 17 Issue 2, p9
The article focuses on the new Buy-In program of Medicaid, which is trying to target younger workers with disabilities. Gilbert Gimm of Mathematica said that the even with the enrollment rising, total Medicaid expenditures did not raise as most of its participants are dual-eligibles, meaning they both qualify for Medicaid and Medicare. He also added that with the use of the Internet especially the power of its social networking sites, Medicaid can better communicate with its target so that it could attract potential buyers of the Buy-In program.
