Current Issues in Medicaid Financing
In recent years there has been much discussion about states’ use of creative financing to draw down additional federal funds for Medicaid financing. Some suggest a curb on these practices and the President’s FY2006 budget includes provisions targeting intergovernmental transfers (IGTs). The Commission has produced a fact sheet and briefs on Medicaid financing issues.
