Using Propensity Score Matching Techniques to Assess Medicare/Medicaid Service Use

This poster describes the use of a propensity score matching methodology to identify comparison groups among Medicare-Medicaid beneficiaries who received Medicaid-paid LTSS via HCBS waivers versus those who did not receive LTSS. This matching technique was used to establish comparable treatment/control pairs for subsequent analysis of cross-payer effects of providing Medicaid-paid LTSS on Medicare acute care resource use, and could be used more generally to strengthen policy analyses.

The commonality across all aging baby boomers, however, is that they have an aversion to current and future institutional living.
