This report reviews the major options available to states to achieve the savings in Medicaid required by the joint budget resolution passed by Congress in June 1995. The report analyzes ways to reduce spending growth for acute and long-term care services and considers stricter eligibility criteria. The authors conclude that reductions in spending growth are too great to be met without cutting eligibility as well as costs per beneficiary.
