Abstract: This study provides information on Medicaid expenditures for adults with developmental disabilities in New York State. The data were derived from two sources: the New York Office of Mental Retardation and Developmental Disabilities' Developmental Disabilities Profile (OMRDD-DDP) and the New York State Medicaid Management Information System (MMIS). Variables from OMRDD-DDP include client's age, sex, race, Hispanic origin, spoken language, level of intellectual functioning, living arrangement, type of developmental disability (mental retardation, cerebral palsy, autism, epilepsy, learning disability, neurological impairment), whether the client was on medication, and whether he or she had been institutionalized for five years or more. MMIS variables include expenditures for medications and expenditures from Medicaid claims submitted by hospital outpatient departments and clinics. Additional MMIS variables include expenditures from Medicare claims submitted by providers of day treatment, home health care, and medical supplies, as well as providers of physician, nursing, dental, vision, psychological, and laboratory services.
