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.
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.
