Save Medicaid

Under the guise of reform, fundamental changes in the financing and structure of the Medicaid program have been proposed that would convert it into a system of per capita funding allocations to the states. Every state would see a reduction in federal Medicaid funding from current levels. These proposals for restructuring Medicaid represent bad ethics and bad economy. LeadingAge opposes these proposals.
