Rhode Island to test Medicaid spending cap
New York Times, January 22, 2009
Rhode Island will be the first state to cap overall spending on Medicaid in an experiment starting early this year. In exchange, the state will be allowed to change healthcare programs that have been tightly controlled by the federal government. The agreement calls for Rhode Island to limit Medicaid spending to $12 billion over the next five years.
