HMS Provides Comments On What The Supreme Court Decision On The Affordable Care Act Means For States

On the con side, Medicaid expansion would be funded completely by the federal government only through 2016. In 2017, federal funding for new Medicaid members would fall to 95%, phasing down to 90% in 2020 and beyond. Opponents note that states — already under pressure from a weak economy — would be required to step up spending as the feds step back.

Finally, expanding Medicaid is not a one-time decision for states. In theory, states could expand and receive the extra federal funding until 2016, and then contract if this funding changes. Service roll-backs may prove difficult.
