Main goal . to explore relationship between place of residence and receipt of selected preventive health care services for adults with intellectual disabilities, while controlling for level of disability. Data sources . Medicaid and Medicare utilization files, Minnesota's Medicaid Management Information System (MMIS) (contains DD screening documents for all recipients of HCBS Waiver and ICF/MRs). Conclusions . Disability varies by residence. Higher disability lowers likelihood of receiving preventive health care (with exception of behavior disability). Likelihood of receiving preventive health care varies with residence. Residents of family homes and own homes least likely to receive preventive health care, even (especially) after controlling for disability. Failure to control for disability may mask differences between residences.
