Medicaid Cut

JAMA. 2005;293(22):2709. doi:10.1001/jama.293.22.2709-b

For the first time since 1997, Congress has approved a budget resolution that proposes cuts in federal funding for Medicaid.

The $2.56 trillion, nonbinding, budget proposal for fiscal year 2006 calls for reducing Medicaid growth over the next 5 years by $10 billion, somewhat less than the $14 billion reduction (with a proposed $60 billion reduction over 10 years) proposed by President Bush.
