Box 325, Norwalk, IA50211 Member of: National Newspaper Iowa Newspaper Association Association Legislative News By State Representative Julian B. Garrett Julian.Garrett@legis.iowa.gov. State's Medicaid Costs Increase Medicaid, providing medical care for low income people, is paid for by both the federal government and the states and is administered by the states. The federal government determines the percent to be paid by the states each year based on the income levels in the states over the prior three years. Though we are proud of the fact that incomes in Iowa have increased more than in many other states, that fact hurts us when it comes to Medicaid ft f dirig:'For the upcoming fiscal year 2015, the federal government's share will go down to 56.14%. This compares to 58.35% for fiscal '14, the current fiscal year and 63.29% in fiscal 2010. The state must pay the rest. Though the increase might not seem like much, when we are talking about a $3.7 billion program even a few percentage points makes a big difference. Another factor that will increase the cost to the state is the ad- vent of Obamacare. It is expected that enrollment in Medicaid will increase significantly because a number of new people will be forced to sign up. The increased cost to Iowa will be $80 million in fiscal year 2015 as compared to fiscal year 2014. As always, feel free to contact me with your ideas or concems.
