Abstract:

This study discusses instances over the past 7 or 8 years in which State attempts to reduce or terminate benefits or restrict eligibility under their Medicaid programs have been delayed or blocked in the Federal courts as being inconsistent with Federal law andor regulations. In view of the administrations proposal to cap Federal financial participation in the State-operated Medicaid programs and to give the States more flexibility, this study identifies the kinds of Federal requirements that most often have been the subject of litigation.
