There is considerable interest in examining how Medicaid payment affects nursing home care. This study examines the effect
of Medicaid payment methods and reimbursement rates on the delivery of rehabilitation therapy to Medicaid nursing home residents
in six States from 1992-1995. In States that changed payment from prospective facility-specific to prospective case-mix adjusted
payment methods, Medicaid residents received more rehabilitation therapy after the change.
