The decision by some Southern states to not expand Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act will keep Medicaid eligibility levels low, according to a new infographic by the Kaiser Family Foundation.

The infographic shows that Southerners are more likely than people living in other parts of the United States to be uninsured; that most Southern states have poverty rates above the national average; and details on the Medicaid coverage gaps in Southern states.

To locate, stratify and engage dual eligibles, Health Care Services Corporation (HCSC) takes a creative approach, employing everything from home visits to ‘street case management’ to coordinate care for Medicare-Medicaid beneficiaries. Dual Eligibles Care and Service Planning: Integrative Approaches for the Medicare-Medicaid Population describes HCSC’s innovative tactics to engage this largely older adult and disabled population in population health management with support from a range of community partners and services.
