AcademyHealth Blog Post Highlights Findings of Virginia/Maryland Substance Use Disorder Waiver Evaluation

The Hilltop Institute's Executive Director Cynthia Woodcock joined Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) Professor Peter Cunningham in an AcademyHealth blog post to discuss the findings of the VCU/Hilltop study that examined the experience with §1115 waivers for substance use disorder (SUD) treatment in Maryland and Virginia. The study, funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s Research in Transforming Health and Health Care Systems program managed by AcademyHealth, found that Maryland had higher utilization of residential SUD treatment services than Virginia both before and after the waiver, but that both states reported shortages of residential treatment providers.
