In a new report, the Commonwealth Fund looks at Medicaid per capita caps, an idea that has been discussed for years, that was part of the as-yet unsuccessful American Health Care Act, and a proposal that is almost certain to resurface in the near future.

Among other things, the article

  • explains what per capita caps are and how they would work
  • describes how per capita caps differ from current Medicaid policy
  • considers how the implementation of per capita caps might affect low-income people, providers, and insurers
