Enhanced Medicaid match funding moving through Senate

The Senate has reached a deal on an extension of the enhanced Medicaid matching funds that most states had already counted on in budgets. CT’s current year budget included $266 million in expected funding which was scaled back to $199 as part of the deal. However, states were concerned that none of the funding would be approved. Many groups, including CSG/ERC, have been lobbying Congress intensively to restore the funding through next June. The funding to states was originally included as part of last year’s stimulus package but was scheduled to end in December.
