Health Care in Massachusetts

What is the Actual State Cost of MassHealth in 2018?

Since Medicaid is a partnership between state and federal governments, much of this essential health care coverage is actually paid for by the federal government. The Governor's proposed Fiscal Year 2018 budget includes approximately $16.6 billion for MassHealth. This total (or gross amount) is approximately 37 percent of total state budget appropriations.

After receiving these reimbursements, the state's net cost for MassHealth is $8.0 billion, 24 percent of the total net budget. Read More
