This report focuses on state health provider fees, taxes and assessments; also similar fees on insurers, most of which impact Medicaid funding.

 

OVERVIEW

The issue of who pays, and how care is financed is a nearly constant topic for state government.  Health programs consume between 20 percent and 30 percent of state budgets.  Legislators also seek to earmark funds for programs, and leverage federal dollars to support existing programs and new projects.   The Affordable Care Act brings additional options and requirements.  Read reports on federal matching funds (FMAP), health provider fees, and ways that states make budget decisions on health.
