Data Points to Consider When Assessing Proposals to Cap Federal Medicaid Funding: A Toolkit for States

Key leaders in Congress and high-ranking members of the Trump Administration are proposing major changes to Medicaid financing through the adoption of a block grant or per capita caps.  To assist states in assessing the potential implications of proposals to cap federal Medicaid funding, the State Network team at Manatt Health has developed a toolkit providing state-by-state data on Medicaid enrollment and expenditure trends—factors that are central to establishing the amount each state would be allocated under various capped funding proposals.

In addition to this resource, a memo explaining its content is available here.  The release of these materials was also accompanied by a webinar presented by the State Network team at Manatt, and this presentation is available here.
