New Study Shows Medicaid Spending Growth Can Be Sustained By Expected Increases in Government Revenues
A new study from the Foundation’s Kaiser Commission on Medicaid and the Uninsured, published in Health Affairs, concludes that expected growth in government revenues is likely to be large enough to sustain Medicaid spending increases over the next 40 years, while also allowing substantial real growth in spending for other public services. The study projects that Medicaid’s share of national health spending will remain virtually unchanged until 2025 and then increase slowly by 2045.
