In addition, dual enrollees who are members of Medicare and Medicaid plans account for nearly 45 % of all Medicaid costs [7]. Medicare covers additional services not provided through Medicare such as hearing aids, visual aids, and extended nursing-care services. Coverage of care by these two programs is largely uncoordinated and inconsistent. Therefore, Medicaid has often disproportionately covered services for patients that should have been covered under Medicare. The establishment of the Coordinated Health Care Office under PPACA may help to facilitate this relationship with Medicare in order to ensure that the correct program is paying for a particular service [30].

However, the private insurance market nevertheless plays a large role in this relationship. Most medical services for Medicaid recipients are obtained through private market plans that provide minimum Medicaid-approved benefits. Medicaid costs are subsequently reimbursed by state and federal funds that are set aside for Medicaid. Furthermore, more than half of Medicaid beneficiaries are enrolled in managed care plans in comparison to fee-for-service plans, in which Medicaid directly pays health providers based on the services that they provide [24].
