A new factsheet, The Governor's FY 2014 House 1 Budget Proposal, describes the Governor's proposal for MassHealth (Medicaid) and other subsidized health coverage programs. The budget proposes $13.6 billion in funding for MassHealth and other subsidized health coverage programs and related activities, which is an increase of $1 billion from FY 2013 spending.
The proposal reflects the major changes that will occur when key provisions of the federal Affordable Care Act (ACA) take effect in January 2014. In addition, the governor's FY 2014 budget proposal includes funding for MassHealth hospital rate increases, restoration of adult dental benefits, delivery system changes (including alternative payment methodologies) and MassHealth administrative simplification initiatives.
This budget brief is the first in a series of fact sheets which will describe the effect of each budget proposal on Health Care programs in Massachusetts. These briefs are produced by the Massachusetts Budget and Policy Center in partnership with the Massachusetts Law Reform Institute--and published by the Massachusetts Medicaid Policy Institute (MMPI).
