Medicare and Medicaid are two publicly funded health care programs. Both cover populations in need of long-term care. They are unsuccessfully connected, and holes often occur in some services while overlap in others. Because of this, there is uncertainty among program beneficiaries and providers as well. The arrangement between Medicare and Medicaid causes inconsistent incentives concerning dually eligible beneficiaries.
