Despite the significance of the Medicaid market, detail on the market composition, growth drivers, and trends is often elusive relative to other health programs. This analysis, the fourth annual on the State of Medicaid, aims to fill that gap.
This analysis provides an in-depth view of the Medicaid market, the continuing impact of Medicaid expansion, and considerations for Medicaid health plans and organizations involved in Medicaid markets going forward. Highlights include:
Undoubtedly, opportunities will remain for private managed care plans and service providers, but the steady state of Medicaid will likely make achieving the outsized gains of the past more difficult.
