Medicaid has been a major source of financing for early intervention services since the inception of the Infants and Toddlers
with Disabilities Program in 1986. In this article, the authors analyze Medicaid financing of early intervention services
in 39 States before and after the introduction of managed care. The association between level of Medicaid financing and program
characteristics, provider arrangements, managed care carve-out policies, and managed care contract requirements is assessed.
The authors discuss the reduction of Medicaid financing after managed care and its implications for State Infants and Toddlers
with Disabilities Programs, State Medicaid agencies, and managed care organizations.
