Highlights from the 2023 Edition of the Duals Data Book

The Data Book: Beneficiaries Dually Eligible for Medicare and Medicaid compiles information on individuals who were dually eligible for Medicare and Medicaid in calendar year (CY) 2020.

This 2023 edition presents key statistics regarding the dually eligible community’s demographics and characteristics, eligibility pathways and enrollment, service utilization and spending, and use of long-term services and supports (LTSS). Furthermore, this data book features trends in population composition, spending, and service use between CY 2018 and CY 2020. Among the key trends reported in CY 2020, the shift towards managed care enrollment for dually eligible beneficiaries and their elevated use of institutional LTSS offer insights into the care and coverage of this vulnerable population.

This data book was jointly produced by MACPAC and the Medicare Payment Advisory Commission (MedPAC).
