Medicaid and the 2003-05 Budget Crisis–State Case Studies

This series of case studies examines how eight states (Alabama, California, Colorado, Massachusetts, Michigan, New York, Texas, and Washington) from around the nation responded to their budget crises from 2003 to 2005, with a focus on how Medicaid and State Children’s Health Insurance Programs were affected. Additionally, an overview of the eight states’ experiences was published in the journal Health Affairs.
