Free Book Available to Determine Dually Eligible Beneficiaries
Dianne De La Mare
The Medicare Payment Advisory Commission and the Medicaid and CHIP Payment
and Access Commission are pleased to announce the release of MedPAC and MACPAC’s joint data book: Beneficiaries Dually Eligible for Medicare and Medicaid. This free data book is part of an ongoing effort by MedPAC and MACPAC to create a common understanding of dually eligible beneficiaries, a relatively small group that accounts for a disproportionate share of both Medicare and Medicaid spending.
This is the fourth edition of this book, updated with 2012 data and 2008–2012 trends in the dually eligible population’s composition, service use, and spending.
The data book is available on both commissions’ websites: www.medpac.gov and www.macpac.gov.
