Abstract:

The majority of Medicaid spending is driven by people with multiple chronic conditions. Greater understanding of these high-need, high-cost beneficiaries can help Medicaid stakeholders design programs to more effectively manage their care, improve their health outcomes, and reduce or control the costs of caring for them.

The Faces of Medicaid II: Recognizing the Care Needs of People with Multiple Chronic Conditions, published by the Center for Health Care Strategies, is a groundbreaking examination of the patterns of multiple chronic conditions among Medicaid beneficiaries. By clearly identifying the complex needs of these beneficiaries, states, plans and providers can develop integrated and coordinated delivery systems that incorporate clinical care with behavioral and non-medical supportive services.
