  3. Better oversight of managed care - More than half of Medicaid enrollees now get care through private managed care companies
  4. Ensuring access to doctors and dentists - People enrolled in Medicaid can get primary and preventive care easily, but may have a hard time finding specialists and dentists
  5. Meeting growing demand for long term care - With the aging of the population accelerating in the next two decades, the demand for long-term care is expected to soar
