This week, CHA joined allied Medicaid groups in raising concerns around the impact of the Medicaid fiscal cliff on beneficiaries and providers in the U.S. territories. Funding for these territories will expire this September. If funding is not allocated, the federal match for the territories will revert to their lower rate. A decrease in the federal match rate is likely to have severe consequences, especially because many of these areas are still rebuilding after the recent hurricanes.
