This report is the first of a series of reports that will be prepared during a three-year evaluation of the statewide implementation of risk-based managed care in Kentucky's Medicaid program. The evaluation will assess the short- and medium-term effects of risk-based managed care implementation on the major partners- beneficiaries, providers, plans, and the Cabinet- with an eye toward understanding the impacts on costs and on the provision of care. In this report, we provide an overview of managed care implementation in Kentucky as of mid-2012 based on our case study analysis, conducted about eight months after the state began enrolling Medicaid beneficiaries in risk-based managed care state-wide.
