Issue Brief 17-27
September 27, 2017

The Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) has released state personal income data that facilitate calculation of the final fiscal year (FY) 2019 reimbursement rate for Medicaid and certain other grant programs—the Federal Medical Assistance Percentage (FMAP). The Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) uses an enhanced FMAP, which is higher than the Medicaid matching rate.

This Issue Brief summarizes the BEA data and provides FFIS’s estimates of the final FY 2019 FMAPs and enhanced FMAPs.
