Medicaid is the primary funding source for family support services and is undergoing a transition from traditional fee-for-service to a managed care model in several states. Semi-structured in-depth interviews were completed with family caregivers (N=15) in four states to understand how the move from traditional Medicaid to managed care has impacted them. This research study assisted The Arc public policy office in its outreach to policy makers and other stakeholders.
