ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the $150 billion healthcare spending provision contained in the stimulus package signed by U.S. President Barack Obama. According to the article, much of the money for healthcare in the package is likely to come sooner rather than later to states and providers in the form of increased Medicaid spending. The $787 billion American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 includes at least $150 billion for healthcare, with the lion's share going toward expanding COBRA by $25 billion and Medicaid assistance to the states by $87 billion.
