This research gives a comprehensive overview of the nursing home payment methodologies used by each State Medicaid program.
To present this comprehensive overview, 1988 data were collected by survey from 49 States and the District of Columbia. The
literature was reviewed and integrated into the study to provide a theoretical framework to analyze the collected data. The
data are organized and presented as follows: payment levels, payment methods, payment of capital-related costs, and incentives
in nursing home payment. We conclude with a discussion of the impact these different methodologies have on program cost containment,
quality, and recipient access.
