Preliminary Findings from Washington State

Reviews the experience of Medicaid enrollees with disabilities during the first year of medical managed care implementation. Compares the experience of disabled persons with mental illness and/or substance use disorders, relative to the experience of disabled persons who do not have identified behavioral health disorders. Quality and outcome metrics that are emerging as performance standards for Medicaid delivery systems are used as the lens for assessing clients’ experience under managed care, relative to the prior experience in fee-for-service coverage.
