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.
