State Fiscal Conditions and Medicaid Program Changes, FY 2012-2013

The Medicaid program provides health and long-term care coverage for low-income families who lack access to other affordable coverage options and for individuals with disabilities for whom private coverage is often not available or inadequate. Medicaid also plays a pivotal role in state budgets, both as an expenditure and a source of federal revenues. This fact sheet provides a brief overview of Medicaid’s role in state budgets, the impact of the recession, current fiscal conditions, as well as results from the most recent annual survey of Medicaid programs conducted by the Kaiser Commission on Medicaid and the Uninsured and Health Management Associates.
