Where Medicaid Stands: From the AHCA to State Waivers

May 24, 2017 | 09:30 AM
10:45 AM ET

The American Health Care Act passed by the House of Representatives earlier this month includes provisions that, if adopted by the Senate, would provide states the option to receive a per capita allotment or block grant while also reducing federal Medicaid funding over time. At the same time, Trump Administration officials have signaled support for states seeking more flexibility in Medicaid program design through waivers. This webinar brought together experts in state and federal health policy to discuss the impact of potential changes to Medicaid with tips for reporters covering this evolving story.

Speakers discussed:

  • how the AHCA would affect states and Medicaid beneficiaries
  • how a system of per capita spending caps would work
  • lessons from the Affordable Care Act’s Medicaid expansion
  • how states might respond to federal flexibility on Medicaid waivers

This webinar is a project of the Alliance for Health Reform and NIHCM Foundation, in collaboration with the Association of Health Care Journalists.
