Abstract (summary)

Medicaid is one of the largest social programs in the federal and state budgets, and is the largest single category of federal funding to states. Originally intended to address social inequality by providing health benefits to those who were unemployed and too poor to provide it for themselves, Medicaid has burgeoned into a complex and expansive program. The financial burden on state and local governments to fund Medicaid has prevented needed projects in education, corrections, transportation, and infrastructure.

My Position Paper on the issue of Medicaid in New York summarizes what I believe to be the most effective ways to implement reform, which must focus on more effective management of program costs, the need for more program oversight and dealing with fraud and abuse, as well as planning for sustainability and affordability in the future.
