This report provides a graphical summary of the Missouri Medicaid program. It is intended to provide background information of the policy issues being considered by the Missouri Medicaid Reform Commission. Medicaid at the national level is summarized first, and then the report describes Missouri Medicaid. The types of health care services, expenditure levels, and categories of participants are presented. Health care service types are summarized with a focus on overall expenditure levels. Participants are summarized into general enrollment groups: Children, Adults, Blind and Disabled, Elderly, and Other. The interrelationships among services, expenditures and participants are explored using current data and historical trends. County level maps display these patterns for the state. Estimates of the effect of recent changes to the Missouri Medicaid Program are provided. (58 slides)
