Missouri Scores High in Serving Intellectually, Developmentally Disabled
by Joe Gamm, Jefferson City News Tribune
Missouri ranks fourth in how well it uses Medicaid programs to serve people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, according to the Case for Inclusion Report 2019.
The report — which has periodically been published since 2006 — is intended to show how well each state is performing, how each matches up against others, and whether policies and practices are meeting states' expectations.
The report considers 30 measures in five categories — promoting independence; promoting productivity; keeping families together; serving those in need; and tracking health, safety and quality of life — to illustrate how well states are doing.
