Abstract Medicaid agencies in many states rely on managed care plans to provide health care services to enrollees. Researchers and policymakers have a growing interest in collecting individual-level data on the use of managed care servicesparticularly in Medicaidto assess quality of care and to conduct comparative effectiveness research, which highlights the need for more information about the availability of these data. The Medicaid Analytic Extract (MAX) 2008 Encounter Data chartbook describes the data available in MAX 2008 for this purpose. The MAX 2008 Encounter Data chartbook is the fourth in a series of MAX chartbooks. The first chartbook showed the types of research on Medicaid enrollment and service utilization that could be conducted using MAX 2002 data (Wenzlow et al. 2007). It provided national and state-level statistics on enrollment patterns among all Medicaid enrollees, including demographic characteristics and managed care enrollment patterns, as well as information about enrollees dually eligible for Medicare and Medicaid (called dual eligibles). The MAX 2002 chartbook also described service utilization and Medicaid expenditures for the enrollees covered on a fee-for-service (FFS) basis.
