State-level and national information about the Medicaid and CHIP programs can often be difficult to find and is spread out across a variety of sources. The Commission’s Medicaid and CHIP Program Statistics (MACStats) pulls key items together in one location and is intended to be used as a reference guide.
MACStats includes state-specific information about program enrollment, spending, eligibility levels, optional Medicaid benefits covered, and the federal medical assistance percentage (FMAP), as well as an overview of cost-sharing permitted under Medicaid and the dollar amounts of common federal poverty levels (FPLs) used to determine eligibility for Medicaid and CHIP. It also provides information that places these programs in the broader context of state budgets and national health expenditures.
Below are PDF and Microsoft Excel versions of the MACStats sections published in our print reports.
