Paradise, J., & Ross, D.C. (2017, January). Linking Medicaid and supportive housing: Opportunities and on-the-ground examples. Menlo Park, CA: The Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation.

Year: 2017


This issue brief outlines ways in which Medicaid can support integrated strategies and, based on telephone interviews with key informants, profiles three current initiatives that illustrate distinctly different approaches to linking Medicaid and supportive housing. The three initiatives include one launched by a city (Philadelphia), one by a state (Louisiana), and one by a Medicaid MCO (Mercy Maricopa Integrated Care in Phoenix, Arizona). They target special populations including homeless individuals, people with a wide range of disabilities, and adults with mental health and/or substance use problems.
