Medicaid Emergency Psychiatric Demonstration (MEPD) Evaluation; Use: 
Since the inception of Medicaid, inpatient care provided to adults ages 
21 to 64 in institutions for mental disease (IMDs) has been excluded 
from federal matching funds. The Emergency Medical Treatment and Active 
Labor Act (EMTALA), however, requires IMDs that participate in Medicare

beneficiary interviews. There have also been changes made to the ``Key
