New Publications Summarize and Explain Trends in Medicaid Spending and Enrollment

A new fact sheet and report analyze Medicaid spending and enrollment trends for 2000-2004. Medicaid trends are related to the state of the nation’s economy, and as the economy has strengthened, increases in enrollment and spending have slowed. Rising enrollment and health care inflation produced most of Medicaid’s spending increases. Even with a stronger economy, however, Medicaid’s enrollment pressures remain due to demographic trends and continued declines in employer-sponsored insurance.
