Dual eligibles, who are sometimes referred to as Medicare-Medicaid enrollees, are consumers that—due to disability, age, and/or income—are eligible to enroll in both Medicare and Medicaid. There are two main types of dual eligibles: full-benefit and partial-benefit. Like the name suggests, full-benefit dual eligibles are consumers who receive the full array of Medicare and Medicaid benefits. Partial-benefit dual eligibles receive the full array of Medicare benefits, but do not qualify for the full array of Medicaid benefits. In these cases, Medicaid provides assistance for some or all of the consumer’s Medicare . . .
