Medicaid: State by State Descriptions & Plans

Medicaid is a federal-state partnership, with state laws, state regulations, federally approved state waivers, and approved "state plans" all creating significant variations from state to state. Listed below are selected links to information about existing Medicaid plans and reform proposals within individual states. It is hoped they will be of general use:
1) to residents seeking basic information about their individual state.
2) to policymakers and researchers interested in comparing activities in one state to those in another.
