Synopsis: This study explores treatment patterns of children with Attention Deficit/Hyperative Disorder (ADHD) enrolled in the Florida Medicaid program in FY 1996-2000. Findings show that most children received sub-optimal care as measured by treatment guidelines. Small but significant improvements in concordance with treatment guidelines occurred over the period examined. Similar improvements in the rate of assessment and family treatment were not found except for small subgroups. Mental health sector involvement appeared to drive treatment improvements. Racial disparities in receipt of appropriate treatment diminished over time in some cases. Long-acting stimulants, introduced to the market late in the study period diffused rapidly among the population.
