Source: VDSS, "Client Cross-Program Locality (Statewide) Yearly Analysis". Reporting unduplicated counts of clients within each locality (clients may be counted more than once if they moved to a different locality). Unduplicated numbers of clients statewide are also provided. Medicaid counts include individuals enrolled through state facilities managed by the Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services (DBHDS). The report uses client data from ADAPT for SFY 2012-2016 counts and VaCMS for counts in SFY 2017 and later. Clients refer only to eligible (i.e., "participating, not excluded") household members.
