Full Text: This article summarizes VA patient enrollment in state Medicaid programs and their use of Medicaid and Medicare services. The article gives researchers guidance as to which kinds of studies could benefit from including Medicaid data, either because many of the veterans in their research might use Medicaid or because veterans who use both Medicaid and VA may have greater healthcare needs than those who use VA only.
