a. Beginning in fiscal year 1991, “Nursing facility services” category combines “Intermediate care facility, All other” and “Skilled nursing facility services,” which were previously
separate. Data under “Nursing facility services” prior to 1991 reflect “Skilled nursing facility services.”
b. Excludes recipients in Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. Data are not available.
SOURCE: Data before 1998 HCFA-Form 2082 and data onward from 1999 Medicaid Statistical Information Systems, MSIS, Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services.
NOTES: Fiscal year 1977 began in October 1976 and was the first year of the new federal cycle. Before 1977, the fiscal year began in July.
Beginning in fiscal year 1980, recipients' categories do not add to unduplicated total because of the small number of recipients that are in more than one category during
the year. Beginning in 1998, several new medical services were combined with “Other” (excludes unknowns).
