States Mull Mid-Year Medicaid Cuts

Faced with growing budget deficits, ten states are pursuing Medicaid cuts to help address their budget deficits sooner rather than later.

This is among the findings of a mid-year budget update from the Kaiser Commission on Medicaid and the Uninsured.

The update is the product of a Kaiser survey of all 50 states and interviews with state Medicaid directors.

State Medicaid cuts pose a major challenge to urban safety-net hospitals because of the large numbers of Medicaid patients they serve.

The update also offers a look at what changes states are considering in the near future.  Read a summary of “A Mid-Year State Medicaid Budget Update for FY 2012 & a Look Forward to FY 2013” and download the full report hereiStock_000005564268XSmall.
