We added the Medicaid services score (MEDSER) to the equation on the grounds that States with easy eligibility should have extensive services, (i.e., that both would be affected by a liberal Medicaid environment).
a possible reason for this outcome--although care needs to be taken with a conclusion based on such sketchy evidence--is that the kind of services upon which the MEDSER element of the MEDTOT variable is based (Table 3), actually reduce expenditures through the use of hospices and home-based services.
