Cost Analysis of a Nurse Care Management Program for High-Risk Medicaid Patients in Montana


In 2010, Montana established a promising nurse care management program that connects high-risk Medicaid patients who are cared for in federally qualified health centers with services that are needed to improve health outcomes and control costs. Care management services are shared with small private physician practices to bolster their capacity to serve as medical homes. With a preliminary analysis of the program indicating cost savings after six months, this project will support an external evaluation over a full year to determine the longer-run impact on health care utilization, quality of care, and costs.
