Supportive Housing for Chronically Homeless Medicaid Enrollees: State StrategiesCenter for Health Care Strategies Policy Brief (2016)
Nearly all individuals experiencing chronic homelessness could be eligible for Medicaid in states pursuing Medicaid expansion under the Affordable Care Act. Given that many of these individuals are at risk for high health care utilization and costs, state and federal policymakers and budget officials are increasingly interested in cost-effective approaches to meet the needs of this population. In July 2015, the Center for Health Care Strategies, with support from the California HealthCare Foundation, the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation, and the New York State Health Foundation, convened state and federal officials along with research and policy experts to identify strategies for expanding access to housing and related services for Medicaid beneficiaries who are chronically homeless. This brief highlights key opportunities for Medicaid programs to better address the housing needs of this high-need, high-cost population.
