Abstract

Fees paid by Medicaid are a primary resource for nonprofit organizations serving individuals with developmental disabilities and severe mental illness. While Medicaid reimbursement has facilitated the transition from institutional to community care, cost is not well understood. This article examines how government and nonprofit organizations negotiate the cost of service delivery. Analysis based on this case study shows cost is a central concern for both government and nonprofit service providers.
