Lakin KC, Hall MJ - Health Care Financ Rev (1990)

Bottom Line: Results indicate that Medicaid support through the ICF/MR program has shown little recent growth in terms of number of persons served, although expenditures continue to increase.Medicaid's HCBS waiver is being used increasingly by States to support residential placement because of its greater flexibility and more individualized approach relative to ICF/MR care.Use of Medicaid to finance care for persons with MR/RC varies considerably across States.

ABSTRACT
Two sources of Medicaid support for persons with mental retardation and related conditions (MR/RC) are examined, the intermediate care facility for the mentally retarded (ICF/MR) program and the home and community-based services (HCBS) waiver. Results indicate that Medicaid support through the ICF/MR program has shown little recent growth in terms of number of persons served, although expenditures continue to increase. Medicaid's HCBS waiver is being used increasingly by States to support residential placement because of its greater flexibility and more individualized approach relative to ICF/MR care. Use of Medicaid to finance care for persons with MR/RC varies considerably across States.

Mentions: Although the findings show substantial movement toward deinstitutionalizing ICF/MR care, other data gathered in this study and illustrated in Figure 2 indicate that the ICF/MR program continued to support an overwhelming proportion of persons within large institutions, and that the movement toward community-based care was much slower in the ICF/MR program than in other settings supported by other funding sources (Lakin et al., 1989 and 1990).
