Medicaid Since 1980: Costs, Coverage, and the Shifting Alliance
Teresa A. Ku, Leighton Holahan, John F. Coughlin
University Press of America
Tuesday, May 10, 1994
Number of Pages:
The past decade has witnessed tremendous growth in the importance and visibility of Medicaid, the federal-state program that provides health care for the poor. In 1981, Medicaid was a $27 billion program that served largely a welfare population. By 1992, it was a $114 billion program that enrolled more than 35 million people with diverse health, social, and insurance needs. Medicaid has been at the forefront of issues such as infant mortality, AIDS, and long-term care. This volume analyzes the evolution of the Medicaid program between 1981 and 1992, with special emphasis on the 1988-92 period, and reviews Medicaid spending and enrollment trends over the past decade. As part of this assessment, it also documents and discusses the many legislative changes that occurred over the last 12 years and changes in the system of federal-state financing.
