10  Significant increase in federal support for Medicaid/CHIP 100% match for “newly eligible” group for 3 years and 95-90% match thereafter Increased match for “childless adults” in “expansion” states (reaches 93%/90% in 2019/2020) Increased match for CHIP in 2016 (enhanced plus 23 percentage points) Regular federal match for remaining currently eligible groups State Financial Impacts

13  Not a “safety net” but a full partner in assuring coverage for all  Eligible = enrolled  Law contemplates a system made up of different components to achieve seamless coverage, quality and cost containment objectives New Paradigm

14 Creating a high performing Medicaid program  Systems upgrades and data/performance standards  Delivery and payment reforms  Focus on “dual eligibles”  Further progress (re)balancing long-term care services and supports  Close attention to program integrity Putting Reform into Medicaid
