Trends in health care use and spending for young children with neurologic impairment.
This retrospective study examined trends in health care use and spending for young children with neurologic impairment (NI) during their first 5 years of life. This study of 13,947 children with NI used data in the multistate IBM Medicaid MarketScan Database from 2009 to 2017. Inpatient service use decreased from 66.8% during the first year down to 5.8% during the fifth year. Emergency department (ED) use decreased more gradually from 67.8% during the first year to 44.4% during the fifth year. Per-member-per-year spending decreased from $83,352 during the first year down to $1944 in the fifth year.
