Medicaid by the numbers ($406 Billion in FY 2010)

Below is the first report from the Medicaid and CHIP Payment and Access Commission (MACPAC).  Created by The Children's Health Insurance Program Reauthorization Act of 2009, MACPAC is a non-partisan agency with the sole purpose of reporting on Medicaid and CHIP programs.  According to the commission, this report will serve as a framework for future reporting to Congress on the two programs. 

Bottom line: taxapyers spent $406 Billion on Medicaid in FY 2010.
