Abstract
This article is based on 4 years of data for a cohort of Medicaid enrollees in California and Georgia to determine patterns of enrollment and expenditures. The analyses were developed from the statistical system known as Tape-to-Tape, which is based on Medicaid enrollment and claims files from these and other States. The composition of the cohort changed over times as a result of the differential rates of turnover for subgroups of the Medicaid population. Longitudinal expenditure patterns also varied by health service and eligibility group. These Medicaid expenditure patterns differed from those observed previously in Medicare studies, undoubtedly reflecting differences in service coverage under Medicare and Medicaid.
