This slide presentation provides an overview of beneficiaries who are dually eligible for Medicaid and Medicare, with statistics on the characteristics of this population, how coverage responsibilities are divided between each program, and how much serving these beneficiaries costs.

The presentation also explains how beneficiaries qualify for dual eligibility, the breakout of beneficiaries who receive services through the fee-for-service delivery system and those who receive them through managed care, and current efforts to integrate services for this high-cost, high-need group of people.
