The American Health Care Act (AHCA) would turn Medicaid into a per capita cap where states would receive a set amount of federal assistance per enrollee which would be dependent on the category in which the enrollee falls. Two of the categories envisioned under the AHCA are seniors and people with disabilities. A new issue brief from the Kaiser Family Foundation looks at the variation of what states spend per enrollee for these two categories. The issue brief entitled “State Variation in Medicaid Per Enrollee Spending for Seniors and People with Disabilities” looks at how states’ coverage of these populations differs and how the AHCA could lock in these differences.
