Abstract

This report is one of a series of reports prepared by the USM Muskie School on MaineCare members who are dually eligible for MaineCare and Medicare Services. An earlier report provided a high level overview of the MaineCare and Medicare use and expenditure patterns for all members who were dually eligible in state fiscal years (SFY) 2008 to 2010. Both reports were prepared as part of the Maine State Profile Tool grant funded by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. This second report analyzes the characteristics, use and expenditure patterns of sub-populations of long term service users including adults with mental illness, adults with brain injury, adults with developmental disabilities, older adults and adults with disabilities and children with mental illness and children with developmental disabilities. The report includes information on MaineCare-only members and members who are dually eligible for MaineCare and Medicare. Dually eligible members in this report are those considered full benefit members.
