0 Comments | Posted

The Kaiser Family Foundation's Commission on Medicaid and the Uninsured has updated its Medicaid Benefits Online Database to include 2010 state-level data about which benefits are covered by Medicaid programs in the 50 states, the District of Columbia and United States territories. The online tool contains Medicaid benefits data for adults covered under fee-for-service, with information about benefits covered, limits, co-payments and reimbursement methodologies. Other years for which data are available include 2003, 2004, 2006 and 2008. The tool allows users to pull up detailed profiles of which benefits are covered in a given state’s Medicaid program, and also to see how a particular benefit is covered across all states. Categories of acute care benefits tracked in the database include institutional and clinic services, practitioner services, prescription drugs, physical therapy and other services, and transportation services. In long-term care, the database tracks community-based care and institutional care.

The database is free and available online.
