Medicaid programs that operate a fee-for-service system pay providers directly for their services. In order to receive payment, providers bill the Medicaid program for payment by submitting a claim. The data from these claims create a snapshot of services provided to Medicaid beneficiaries from both inpatient and outpatient care, as well as other services including pharmacy and home health care.
