Iowa will wait on Medicaid cut

Des Moines Register, January 13, 2009

Iowa officials will delay making Gov. Chet Culver's 1.5% budget cut to Medicaid services in hopes of landing federal money to offset the loss, a spokesman for Iowa's human services department said. Culver's across-the-board cut amounts to roughly $10 million for the state's Medicaid programs. But for every state dollar cut, $2 in federal matching money is jeopardized. That amounts to a $30 million service cut, Department of Human Services spokesman Roger Munns said.
