Medicaid Block Grant Waiver Reports Revive Hospitals' Funding Worries

Hospitals are furious that the Trump administration is reportedly exploring allowing states to convert their Medicaid programs into block grants, a policy the industry fervently fought when Congress tried to repeal the Affordable Care Act. If states take advantage of the block-grant flexibility, first reported in Politico, it would cap federal spending for Medicaid in those states and could leave them on the hook for any expenditures over that limit. States would either have to cut their Medicaid rolls or payments to disproportionate-share hospitals and nursing homes to curb spending, some experts said. (Robert King, Modern Healthcare)
