We are working with the Integrated Care Resource Center to provide technical assistance to states developing integrated programs to coordinate medical, behavioral health, and long-term services and supports for people eligible for both Medicare and Medicaid.
Long-Term Services and Support
Mathematica is working with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to evaluate a major initiative―Money Follows the Person (MFP)―aimed at helping state Medicaid programs reduce their reliance on institutional care for people needing long-term care, and expand options for receiving care in the community. Also for CMS, we are identifying ways to improve the identification of Medicaid home- and community-based services in Medicaid Analytic eXtract (MAX) data files so that both states and the federal government can get a better understanding of the nature, scope, and cost of these services. MAX files can also be used for detailed studies of nursing facility residents and their care.

New Approaches for Medicaid: The 1115 Demonstration Evaluation
Mathematica's evaluation of Medicaid Section 1115 waiver demonstrations, approximately 40 in number, seeks to assess the implementation and outcomes of four different types of innovations and help CMCS shift toward data-driven decision making for future waiver approvals.
