This presentation uses MAX data to explore three research questions related to geographic variation in Medicaid expenditures:

» Does interstate variation in Medicaid spending result primarily from variation in the volume of services or in the price per unit of service?
» How do inter- and intrastate variation in Medicaid utilization and spending compare to variation in Medicare spending and utilization?
» Is more health care better for Medicaid beneficiaries?
