Florida Medicaid, out-of-home treatment for youth

Abstract

Florida Medicaid claims data were used to identify children and adolescents in out-of-home mental health care from 2003–2007. These were then matched with Florida Department of Juvenile Justice and Law Enforcement records. Propensity score matching was used to allow for observed differences between youth in different treatment settings. Multinomial logistic regression models were used to test relationships between arrest rates.
