- Full Report:
Pursuant to a congressional request, GAO provided information on how the proposed MediGrant Program will affect Florida's federal Medicaid funding between fiscal years (FY) 1996 to 2002. GAO noted that: (1) Florida state officials estimate that Florida would receive $7.6 billion less under the proposed MediGrant program; (2) Florida is expected to match $30.6 billion under Medicaid spending law and $15.8 billion under the MediGrant proposal; (3) the MediGrant program would guarantee minimum growth rates for some states and place limits on the maximum growth a state receives annually; and (4) the MediGrant program would increase Florida's share of federal Medicaid spending from 3.67 percent in FY 1994 to 4.13 percent in FY 2002.
