FAAST Medicaid Block Grant Webpage

FAAST is monitoring national and state happenings concerning Medicaid Block Grants.  

What are Medicaid block grants?
The basic idea of a Medicaid block grant is to give states maximum flexibility in exchange for their accepting a fixed amount of funding from the federal government. It's been around for decades, but the block-grant scheme is gaining new traction as states face skyrocketing Medicaid costs.
