ABSTRACT
The article reports that several U.S. states are bracing for drastic reductions to their Medicaid and other health and social services programs in the fiscal year 2012 due to the loss of enhanced Federal Medical Assistance Percentages (FMAP). The Illinois state government is considering a 6% rate cut to most Medicaid providers, while Alaska's Medicaid program is exploring several options to increase its cost savings such as promoting the use of generic medications.
