Exploring Health Equity in Complex Medicaid Populations

Back to Resources
AUTHOR – ATI Advisory

ATI Advisory in partnership with UnitedHealthcare Community & State, developed a report highlighting the health equity considerations faced by Medicaid beneficiaries with complex care needs. Findings from ATI’s analysis show substantial disparities and intersectional needs among individuals dually eligible for Medicare and Medicaid, individuals with long term services and supports (LTSS) need, and individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD).

This report includes data on the characteristics, experiences, spending, and utilization within these populations as well as implications and opportunities for managed care organizations and states interested in reducing disparities and improving healthcare outcomes for complex Medicaid populations.
