HEALTH CARE COSTS AND UTILIZATION IN AIDS HOME CARE

Project Details

Description

This prospective study will analyze costs and predictors of health care
services utilized by participants in New Jersey's Home and Community-
Based Waiver program for persons with AIDS and ARC. The patient cohort to
be studied provides a unique opportunity for health services research
since subjects can be readily identified, sampled, and interviewed; full
actual payment data are available on all health services utilized; a high
proportion of ethnic minorities, IV drug users, women, and pediatric
cases is included; subjects can be followed and reinterviewed through
program case managers. The study will help determine the cost,
feasibility and replicability of providing case management and extensive
access to community-based services through Medicaid waiver. Cost of
health care services utilized, both community-based and institutional,
will be determined and followed over time; impact of providing in-home
care services on informal social supports will be evaluated; and
differences among subgroups (by gender, race, and risk group) in social
supports and services utilization will be assessed. A comparison program
utilizers with PWA not using the program will be made utilizing a
separate sample being interviewed in current research.
