This Data Collection, the Medicaid Managed Care Market Tracker, provides information related to risk-based Medicaid managed care organizations MCOs that provide comprehensive services, including acute care services and, in some cases, long-term services and supports as well, to Medicaid enrollees. In addition, the Tracker provides information on parent firms that own Medicaid MCOs in two or more states. The data in the Medicaid Managed Care Tracker are current to the date or period specified in the sources for each table. The information in this Tracker is public information and may be reproduced with appropriate citation. Medicaid Managed Care Market Tracker More than two-thirds of all Medicaid beneficiaries nationally receive most or all of their care from risk-based managed care organizations MCOs that contract with state Medicaid programs to deliver comprehensive Medicaid services to enrollees. Although not all state Medicaid programs contract with MCOs, a large and growing majority do, and states are also rapidly expanding their use of MCOs to serve more medically complex beneficiaries, deliver long-term services and supports, and, in states that have expanded Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act ACA , to serve millions of newly eligible low-income adults.

The association between Medicare Advantage market penetration and diabetes in the United States

A woman came into Dr. Leonard Hock's Brookside office a couple of weeks ago complaining of pain in her wrists and hands so severe that she needed help dressing. Hock's examination and tests indicated she had advanced carpal tunnel syndrome. She told him she already had tried resting the hands, taking anti-inflamatory drugs and other moderate treatments and wanted surgery. But her insurance company balked at paying for it, suggesting instead more rest, physical therapy and anti-inflamatory drugs.
The objective of this study is to explore the extent to which managed care market penetration in the United States is associated with the presence of chronic disease. Diabetes was selected as the chronic disease of interest due to its increasing prevalence as well as the disease management protocols that can lessen disease complications. We hypothesized that greater managed care market penetration would be associated with 1 lower prevalence of diabetes and 2 lower prevalence of diabetes-related comorbidities DRCs among diabetics. Data for this analysis came from two sources. Results suggest that county-level MA market penetration is not significantly associated with prevalence of diabetes or DRCs.
