Medicaid Rate Cells for Three States

A total of 14 Medicaid rate cells categories for South Carolina, Ohio, and Indiana are analyzed and presented in the findings section below. Six of those categories were for South Carolina, five for Ohio, and three for Indiana. We retrieved South Carolina’s rates from the state’s department of health and human services Managed Care Capitation Rate Certification Report. For Ohio, we found a report on Medicaid by the Ohio Association of Health Plans. Equally, for Indiana, we pulled the categories from a report on Indiana Health Coverage Programs published by Medicaid. Read on for full details regarding these categories.

According to Urban Organization, Indiana has 15 rate cells which include M&F 0-11 mo., M&F 1-12, M&F 13-20, F 21+, and M 21+ across 3 regions. In each region, the state provided plan-specific rates; thus, we used a straight average of these plan rates as regional rates and did not weight plan rates by enrollment.
