This study of the Medicaid program analyzes changes in child recipients, costs, and service use during the 1980s to assess the effects of recent federal policy shifts and to project future costs for children.
Data presented in this study are from the Health Care Financing Administration's Medicaid Statistical Report for the years 1979, 1985, and 1990, three time-points that demarcate major federal policy shifts.
About half of all recipients added to the Medicaid program during the last decade were children; they comprised 14% of the total cost growth experienced by the program.
