Race and Ethnicity Data for Medicaid Beneficiaries

Complete and consistent race and ethnicity data for Medicaid beneficiaries are critical to identifying and addressing health disparities. As the COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted disparities among racial and ethnic groups, the availability and quality of data on race and ethnicity warrants a closer look in order to accurately and appropriately mitigate health disparities within the Medicaid population. This study will evaluate the extent to which Medicaid's race and ethnicity data for beneficiaries as reported to T-MSIS are complete and consistent across States. We will also determine the extent to which the data align with Federal data collection standards for race and ethnicity.
