Department of Community Health Budget

This budget SB1094, increases by 3.4%. We now spend $12.4 BILLION. It is $30 million more than the Governor proposed and we have $300 million less available than when the Governor made her proposal. We are now spending $3.1 billion in general fund dollars. (We actually did lower general fund spending by $3.8 million due to increased federal matching funds and other program savings resulting from federal and state policy changes.)

We are once again giving Medicaid benefits to 19 and 20 year-olds.
