Brief

Social Risk Factor Screening in Medicaid Managed Care

This brief provides an introduction to the first step most states are taking through their Medicaid managed care programs to address how social determinants of health influence Medicaid enrollee health status and spending—screening members for social risk factors.

A companion report looks at the progress four states have made in developing their own social risk factor screening measures and highlights considerations for other states either planning to adopt an existing or develop a new screening measure.

State Health and Value Strategies is hosting a webinar series that will profile the findings.
