Requirements for low-income families Can I get Medicaid? As we all are aware, Federal Medical Law allows states broad discretion over Medicaid eligibility policy. Therefore, eligibility varies from state to state. Medicaid in Florida Since Medicaid is an “entitlement” program, anyone who meets eligibility rules has the right to receive Medicaid coverage.

Low income families with children
Children only
Pregnant women
Non-citizens with medical emergencies
Aged and/or disabled individuals not currently receiving Supplemental Security Income (SSI) As of January 4,2013, Florida Governor Rick Scott made a proposal to expand the Medicaid Program.
This expansion would boost economic activity in Florida by $8.9 billion in 2016 with more people being insured and job growth.
1.8 million uninsured Floridians would qualify for Medicaid through the Affordable Care Act.

However, State Senate panel rejected the proposal--they would instead compromise and accept the federal money but use it to put the low-incomers into private insurance plans.
Lawmakers have until May 3 to decide for
Medicaid. What is the Affordable Care Act Of 2010? What it means for Florida cont’d? “While the federal government is committed to paying 100% of the cost, I cannot in good conscience deny Floridians that needed access to health care.” – Rick Scott, Feb.,2013 What it means for Florida? Financing
Payment Integrated Functions of Managed Care Managed Care provides many different types of healthcare services to members enrolled in a managed care plan by contracting with many physicians and hospitals around the country What is Managed Care cont’d...? Managed Care, defined by the National Library of Medicine, “as programs or organizations intended to reduce unnecessary healthcare costs through a variety of mechanisms…” What is Managed Care? http://www.healthcare.gov/law/timeline/index.html Affordable Care Act of 2010: Timeline Mental health delivery: examining both qualitative and quantitative aspect of outpatient mental health treatment, managed care was found to achieve cost savings buy not at the expense of quality of care(Goldman et al.2003) Influence on Quality Care, cont. HMO and non HMO plans provided roughly equal quality of care
HMOs lower the use of hospitals and other expensive resources: Managed care plans have been cost effective, while delivering levels of quality either comparable to or better than traditional insurance plans. Influence on Quality Care, cont. Despite isolated stories propagated by the news media, no comprehensive research to date has demonstrated that manage care’s growth has been at the cost of quality in health care. On the contrary, quality of health care provided by MCOs has improved over time(Hofmann 2002)

In terms of benefits and costs, being white or a member of a minority class makes no difference for Medicare enrollees regardless of whether they are enrolled in Managed care or in the traditional fee-for-service program (Balsa et al.2007) Influence on Quality Care, cont. Physicians under capitation take full responsibility for the patient’s overall care.(Eikel 2002) Example: life treatment decisions, such as treatment of cancer patients(Bourjolly et al. 2004)
On the other hand, Medicaid patients under capitation, may not receive certain services for which the PCPs do not get additional compensation, which may impact patient’s quality of care.(Quast et al. 2008) Influence on Quality Care, cont. Managed care enrollees have good access to primary and preventive care.
2001-2003 More relaxed utilization controls by health plans in the years following the severe criticism of managed care.
Larger scale, manages care’s impact is not known.
1996-2000: employers offering insurance benefits increased from 59 to 67 % (3-199workers/3-9 workers), during unprecedented economic growth. Impact on Access HMOs include today complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) for its potential to save money, as well as improve quality.
Lower cost therapies: stress management and meditation classes can save numerous trips to physicians and costly diagnostic tests. Managed Care Managed Care Cost Across Plans Different qualities
Overall, equivalent fee-for-service plans
Disparities base on race and socioeconomic status, are unfounded (De Francesco 2002).
Evidence that quality of care may be lower in for-profit health plans , compared to nonprofit plans(Himmelstein et al.1999, Scheneider et al.2005). Influence on Quality Care 1998 : Enrollees an providers prompted MCOs to back away from aggressive cost control measures.
Full cost-containment of managed care was never realized, and private and public insurance plans have moved their enrollees from fee-for service plans to managed care and placed it in a dominant position in the health insurance marketplace.
Future cost reductions in costs, will sacrifice utilization, particularly on the use of expensive new technology. Open-panel options
