AHRQ report reveals use of Medicaid home and community-based services

Announcements

A new AHRQ report found that 2.2 million Medicaid patients—one of every 25 beneficiaries of the Federal-State health insurance program—were provided home health care or other home and community-based services in 2005. The report includes findings on the availability and use of home and community-based services and potentially avoidable hospital admission rates. For details, see &Health and Welfare of the Medicaid Home and Community-Based Services Population& at www.ahrq.gov/research/ltc/hcbsfindings.

To view a related report, &Development of Quality Indicators for the Home and Community-Based Services Population: Technical Report,& go to www.qualityindicators.ahrq.gov. The researchers also published the article, &Users of Medicaid Home and Community-Based Services Are Especially Vulnerable to Costly Avoidable Hospital Admissions,& in the June 2012 issue of Health Affairs. You can access the abstract on PubMed at: www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22665828.
