2018 Medicaid 360: State-By-State Medicaid Report - ResearchAndMarkets.com

DUBLIN--()--The "2018 Medicaid 360: State-By-State Medicaid Report" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

The Annual state-by-state Medicaid Report gives a comprehensive and current overview of the critical Medicaid trends to follow: individual state Medicaid budgets, changes in expansion, state decisions on health insurance exchanges, enrollment statistics, and Medicaid expenditures for fiscal year 2015. Featuring the most recent comprehensive Medicaid expenditure data released by the CMS, readers of this report will come away with a better understanding of the current status of each state's Medicaid program.

Despite repeated promises and numerous attempts, Republicans' best efforts to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act (ACA) failed in 2017. The ACA's future remains uncertain, and as such, the future of Medicaid funding is just as unclear.

However, the inclusion of Medicaid reform in both the American Health Care Act (AHCA) and in the Better Care Reconciliation Act (BCRA) indicates a legitimate desire to rework the program, although finding agreement on reform is difficult. Given the GOP control in Washington, and the potential savings involved in federal spending, Medicaid reform will continue to be a legislative focus in the near term.
