Extension of Enhanced Medicaid Benefits to States (FMAP)

Source: Jennifer Burnett and Debra Miller, Council of State Governments, October 2010

From the summary:
As legislatures and governors finalized state budgets earlier this year, 24 states made the bet that Congress would extend enhanced Medicaid match rates from ARRA and included that assumption in their budgets. In August 2010, Congress passed legislation including additional Medicaid assistance through enhanced FMAP rates through the end of FY 2011 – or June 2011 – but provided less aid to states than many had anticipated.
