Filling the need for trusted information on national health issues

Medicaid Policy Action Trends

For 18 years, the Kaiser Program on Medicaid and the Uninsured (KPMU) and Health Management Associates (HMA) have conducted annual surveys of Medicaid programs across the country. The National Association of Medicaid Directors (NAMD) has formally collaborated on this project since 2014. This data collection pulls together state by state information on select policy actions taken by state Medicaid programs collected through this survey. The following issue brief provides an overview of key themes and trends of this data. This resource will be updated annually with new survey data. Archived 50-State Medicaid Budget Surveys are available here. More information on managed care is also available in the Medicaid Managed Care Tracker.
