Vermont offers the best Medicaid services for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities while Mississippi provides the worst, according to an annual ranking released Thursday.

 

The 50-state analysis from United Cerebral Palsy compares services offered across the country, giving preference to states where more individuals are served in the community as opposed to institutions.

 

NVRC NOTE:

The top 5, in order, are: Vermont, Arizona, Michigan, New Hampshire and California. The bottom five are #47 Illinois, #48 Texas, #49 Arkansas, #50 Mississippi, and #51 District of Columbia.

 

Virginia ranks #38, well behind neighboring state Maryland at #31 and even further behind West Virginia at #19.
