Web Briefing For Journalists: Medicaid’s Future? Understanding Block Grants and Per Capita Caps
President Trump and Republican leaders have called for fundamental changes in Medicaid’s financing through conversion to a block grant or per capita cap. Such a change could reduce federal spending and offer more flexibility for states to manage their programs. However, the switch also could eliminate eligible individuals’ entitlement to coverage and shift costs to states, beneficiaries, and providers.
On Thursday, February 23 from 12:30 p.m. ET to 1:30 p.m. ET, the Kaiser Family Foundation will host a web briefing for journalists to explain how block grant and per capita cap spending proposals for Medicaid would work and what the possible implications are.
