At the request of the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DHMH), The Hilltop Institute conducted a series of analyses on the health care utilization of Maryland’s full-benefit Medicare-Medicaid dual-eligible beneficiaries. Together, these analyses provide an overview of how this population accesses health care services, the types of services being used, and where the services are provided.

This analysis explores utilization of inpatient services by “high utilizer” full-benefit dual-eligible beneficiaries, defined as those who had three or more inpatient stays during CY 2012. The report examines demographics and county of residence; providers serving this population; chronic conditions and most frequent diagnosis-related groups; and Medicare and Medicaid expenditures and service days.

Together, these analyses provide an overview of how this population accesses health care services, the types of services being used, and where the services are provided.

This report explores dual-eligible beneficiaries’ use of post-acute care (i.e., skilled nursing, inpatient rehabilitation, nursing facility services, hospice, and home health services) in the 30 days immediately following an inpatient stay, as well as their settings of care in the 7 days preceding an inpatient stay. In addition to pre- and post-inpatient settings, the report examines demographics, county of residence, and the most frequent diagnosis-related groups for the population studied.

Hilltop staff made several presentations at the 2015 AcademyHealth Annual Research Meeting (ARM) held June 13 through June 15 in Minneapolis. Executive Director Cynthia H. Woodcock, MBA, presented this poster for Director of Special Studies Ian Stockwell, PhD, at a State Health Research and Policy Interest Group poster session on June 13.

This poster shows that, when the enrollment trajectory of Maryland’s Community First Choice participants is examined, it becomes clear that some groups (such as individuals already in a 1915(c) waiver) are able to begin receiving services sooner than others. On average, CFC recipients used 96 percent of the personal or attendant care hours allocated on their plan of care. Also, planned services contained 58 percent more services on average than proposed by the acuity-based methodology.
