The Language of Medicaid

Enhanced medical homes.  Global bundling.  Risk-based managed care.

The list goes on.

Current efforts to find new, better, and more economical ways to serve the Medicaid population have given rise to a new language:   the language of Medicaid in the 21st century.  Some of the terms used in today’s policy discussions are old, some are new, and some are not nearly as self-explanatory as they might seem.

The Kaiser Commission on Medicaid and the Uninsured has compiled a glossary of these terms – a useful tool in an environment in which the federal government and state governments are constantly producing proposals for new ways to address enduring challenges.  Find the Kaiser Medicaid glossary hereHealth Care Reform/Flag.
