DHS Substantially Reduces Medicaid Spending Estimate

Mental Health Task Force Update 1/7/16

DHS reports that Medicaid spending in Wisconsin will be $72.6 million less than previously expected over the course of the current biennium. The biggest single factor is that BadgerCare participation among childless adults is now about 10,000 below the level assumed in the budget bill. Another significant factor is that the federal match rate for Medicaid spending will rise in Wisconsin in October, and that is expected to reduce state costs by $23 million during the biennium.
