Impact of AHCA Medicaid Cap on Children

A recent analysis by Avalere projected the impact of federal Medicaid cap proposals on overall and state-by- state federal spending on children currently in Medicaid. The report estimated that the House-passed #AHCA would cut Medicaid for kids by $43 billion by 2026. In Colorado, these cuts would amount to $571 million.

While this study focused exclusively on non-disabled children, the high costs associated with disabled children in Medicaid would likely make the total impact of the AHCA on kids significantly greater.
