This report summarizes findings from a qualitative assessment of implementation of Kentucky Medicaid managed care. It provides an update on the implementation issues identified in our year one report based on 18 stakeholder interviews and document review, and incorporates information obtained in ten focus groups across the state to provide insights about beneficiary experiences and their perceptions of changes to care. We find that many implementation issues identified in our year one report have stabilized over time. Focus group participants report few problems gaining access to health care services, though access to prescription drugs and behavioral health services remain areas of concern.
