In collaboration with the Aging and People with Disabilities (APD) program of Oregon’s Department of Human Services (DHS), Portland State University’s Institute on Aging generated this report of Medicaid clients living in community-based care (CBC) settings in the state of Oregon. The Oregon legislature appropriated funds for DHS to collect information about these community-based care providers which will allow DHS, providers, and the public to better understand characteristics of Medicaid clients living in different CBC settings.

This report is based on an analysis of Medicaid data provided by DHS. The study goals were to:

  • describe Medicaid clients’ health-related needs, service use, and demographic characteristics;
  • provide a baseline for future reports.

In addition, this information about Medicaid clients can be compared to the recently completed summary of assisted living facilities (ALF), residential care facilities (RCF), memory care communities (MCC), and adult foster homes (AFH) completed by Portland State University’s Institute on Aging. All three CBC reports and a report recently completed by Oregon State University on nursing facilities in Oregon, provide an important overview of community-based and long-term care settings in Oregon that can be used by policymakers, providers, and consumers.


This report was prepared in collaboration with the following stakeholders:

  • Oregon Department of Human Services
  • Oregon Health Care Association
  • Leading Age Oregon
  • SEIU, Local 503
