Best States for Medicaid Services Ranked
Based on statistics for how well state Medicaid programs serve Americans with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) and their families, Arizona was ranked the best in terms of how individuals are served in the community and how well each state treats them. Mississippi was ranked last. The rankings were reported in “The Case for Inclusion 2015″ report by researchers with the United Cerebral Palsy (UCP). The Case for Inclusion is an annual report that measures data and outcomes for the 50 states and the District of Columbia, based on key indicators that include how people with I/DD live and participate in their communities, if they are satisfied with their lives, and how easily the services and supports they need are accessed.
