f5-hcfr-25-3-069: Top 10 States in Medicaid FFS Expenditures for Prescribed Drugs: Federal Fiscal Year 2001

Mentions: The following information relates to the Medicaid FFS population for FFY 2001 (October 1, 2000-September 30, 2001), unless otherwise stated (Figure 5). This section looks at the 10 States with the highest FFS prescribed drug expenditures in FFY 2001. Prescription payment data in Medicaid FFS includes services to individuals in primary care case management. The composition and characteristics of the beneficiaries vary by State, in large part because the proportion of beneficiaries in capitated M+C varies by State. Because most beneficiaries in capitated M+C are children and non-elderly adults, States with predominantly FFS populations will have a disproportionate number of elderly Medicaid beneficiaries included in the data reported.
