Kaiser Releases New Briefs on Dual Eligibles

April 10, 2012

The Kaiser Family Foundation has issued two new briefs on individuals dually eligible for Medicare and Medicaid. The briefs provide an in-depth look at these beneficiaries and the role each program plays. 

Medicaid's Role for Dual-Eligible Beneficiaries explains the role Medicaid plays in filling in the gaps in Medicare's coverage for dual-eligible beneficiaries. It also provides national and state-by-state data on enrollment and examines national and state-specific data on Medicaid spending for dual-eligibles by service and eligibility group. 

Medicare's Role for Dual-Eligible Beneficiaries examines Medicare spending for these beneficiaries. It describes the characteristics of those with the relatively high and low Medicare costs and includes state-specific data on the share of Medicare beneficiaries who are dually eligible.
