Summary
"In 2005, the American College of Physicians (ACP) published Redesigning Medicaid During a Time of Budget Deficits. The paper was released at a time when the Bush Administration and Congress were seeking new ways to limit the accelerated growth of the Medicaid program by permitting states to have more discretion regarding cost-sharing and delivery system reform. Medicaid continues to be an enormous part of states' budgets, and when combined with the Medicare program, makes up 4% of the nation's gross domestic product. The Medicaid system provides vital health services to vulnerable populations, such as the poor and disabled, but like the health care system as a whole, Medicaid needs to be improved to emphasize preventive and primary care. Some of this is occurring now, as states like Vermont experiment with a medical home pilot project and others heighten attention to determining best practices. The need for the program is even more elevated as the country emerges from an economic recession and more people have turned to the Medicaid system for coverage. On March 23, 2010, President Obama signed into law the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) and a companion bill that provided further changes. Among other things, the landmark health care reform legislation would expand access to the Medicaid program regardless of categorical eligibility, potentially increasing program enrollment by over 16-18 million by 2019. Ten states may see Medicaid enrollment increase by 50%. The law will dramatically alter the landscape of health care coverage and delivery; while more uninsured Americans will have access to coverage under Medicaid, private insurance, and other means, the health care system will probably continue to face challenges involving financing, delivery system reform, and the provider workforce. ACP will continue to focus on analyzing and encouraging effective models to redesign how care is delivered, financed, and reimbursed under Medicaid to 1) provide more value for the services provided; 2) ensure access to physicians; 3) create a more viable long-term financing mechanism; and 4) address how long-term care should be improved and financed. The influx of Medicaid-covered patients into the health care system heightens the need for fundamental changes in health care delivery, financing, and payment policies to sustain the program. Expanding Medicaid will be a daunting task as the program is poised to become one of the largest -- if not the largest -- payer of health care services. However, this daunting task provides an opportunity to reform the program to emphasize primary care and prevention; transform the delivery system to strengthen evidence-based, patient-centered care; ensure physician participation; reform the long-term care system to allow people to live in their homes and communities; and reduce administrative barriers by promoting health information technology. This paper provides a brief update on changes to the program over the last 3-4 years and makes recommendations on how the Medicaid program can be improved to ensure access and sustainability in the future."--Executive summary
