Attorneys argue over Medicaid lawsuit

(Continued)

FRANKFORT —

The Medicaid program is funded on a federal-state match system which is calculated based on a state’s income and population statistics. Historically in Kentucky, the state pays 30 percent of the cost with the remaining 70 percent picked up by the federal government.

The new expansion will be funded entirely by the federal government for three years and after that the federal match drops to 90 percent over three years.
