This document is an addendum to the "State Mental Hospital Continuity of Care Study, Preliminary Report" dated March 30, 2001. The present document reports on the analysis of the AHCA Hospital Discharge Data and of the Medicaid Claims data. These data were not available in time to be presented in the original report. Refer to the original report for most details of the design of the study and the methods of analysis. In addition, we applied somewhat stricter criteria for elimination of forensic cases which resulted in a somewhat smaller sample size.
