Amid a great deal of speculation about the possibility of Congress and the new Trump administration turning Medicaid into a block grant program, Kaiser Health News has taken a step back to ask the question “What does this even mean?”

Among the issues the new article addresses are:

  • how a Medicaid block program might work
  • how block grants differ from per capita caps
  • why block grants are so interesting and so appealing to some public officials
  • the chances of Medicaid becoming a block grant program
