Beneficiaries include Medicaid enrollees who received services and those enrolled in managed care plans.


Medicaid managed care enrollment data include individuals in state health care reform programs that expand eligibility beyond traditional Medicaid eligibility standards. The managed care enrollment data include enrollees receiving comprehensive and limited benefits. Managed care enrollment as of June 30 of year shown. Starting with 2001 data, U.S. total excludes Puerto Rico and Virgin Islands. Managed care enrollment data may change year to year due to a variety of factors, including changes in waiver programs, outreach efforts, and data reporting practices.

Medicaid payments exclude disproportionate share hospital (DSH) payments ($10.7 billion in FY2008) and DSH mental health facility payments ($1.9 billion in FY2008).
