The non-partisan Congressional Budget Office released estimates on March 13 indicating that Medicaid spending would be reduced by $880 billion (25% less compared to current law) over the next decade.
Medicaid Per Capita Caps would go into effect beginning in 2020, limiting the amount of federal Medicaid funding provided to states.
