新的Medicare处方药利益对国家足彩预测网补助预算的影响

多年来,州长和其他州决策者一直认为足彩预测网保险–而不是国家足彩预测网补助计划–应在向Medicare受益人提供处方药承保范围方面发挥关键作用,包括那些因贫困和/或有广泛足彩预测网保健需求而也有资格获得Medicaid的人(即“dual eligibles”). Although the new 足彩预测网保险 prescription drug benefit law shifts drug coverage for 双重合格 from 足彩预测网补助 to 足彩预测网保险, it does not provide all of the fiscal relief that states had expected would accompany this shift, nor does it guarantee equivalent coverage to 双重合格.

This issue brief describes the key provisions of the new law with implications for state 足彩预测网补助 budgets and 双重合格, reviews the estimates available at this time on the effect of these provisions on state 足彩预测网补助 expenditures; and discusses why the fiscal impact of the new law can be expected to vary widely across states.
