KCMU (Kaiser Commission on Medicaid and the Uninsured) (2013).
A recent report from the Kaiser Commission on Medicaid and the Uninsured (KCMU) (November 4, 2005) profiles the growing uninsured and the increasing strain on meeting needs of the uninsured through public safety net programs.
As noted earlier, only 24 states and DC are currently planning to participate in the Medicaid expansion (KCMU, 2013).
"The renewal of CHIP and the fiscal relief and eligibility and enrollment protections for Medicaid in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act [ARRA] proved critical to enable states to continue their commitment to providing coverage to millions of low-income families," says Diane Rowland, executive vice president of the Kaiser Family Foundation and executive director of the KCMU. "But even with signs of economic recovery, state revenues are still mired in a severe slump and, faced with the end of enhanced federal money after 2010, fiscal shortfalls are likely to cause states to consider significant cuts to Medicaid and CHIP."
More recently, a report from the Kaiser Commission on Medicaid and the Uninsured shows that rates of Medicaid enrollment were quite high in the early years of the current decade, while state tax revenue increased at a slower rate, up to a period when it actually began to decline (KCMU Survey, 2004).
