AHCA LAUNCHES STATE OF THE STATES CLEARINGHOUSE

Caroline Haarmann 
 
AHCA members now have access to key Medicaid and Medicare information through the new State of the States Clearinghouse. The AHCA State of the States Clearinghouse is a one stop shop for key Medicaid and Medicare information impacting the long term care profession.

This new resource provides valuable data, including:

· Overview of the demographic landscape;
· State-specific nursing center occupancy and ownership breakouts; 
· Certificate of Need requirements for nursing centers and state licensure requirements; 
· State data on the cost of care for long term services and supports;  
· State data on the total number of Medicare enrollees; 
· Data on state Medicare Advantage plan enrollees and comparisons to the national average; 
· State and national Medicaid expenditure data;
· State Medicaid rates, costs and shortfalls;
· And other significant state-specific data related to payment structure, managed long term services and home and community based services coverage.
 
AHCA will continue to update the information available through the Clearinghouse and share new data/resources as they become available. Also be sure to visit the AHCA Medicaid Page to learn more about the program and to access additional AHCA members-only Medicaid resources.
