Medicaid funds restored in Pennsylvania

The state of Pennsylvania backed off on some of its harshest proposed cuts for Medicaid in its coming fiscal year, adding more than $100 million back to the program, according to The Philadelphia Inquirer. Altogether, the last minute changes included $46 million in state money that will leverage another $55 million in federal funds.

Nursing homes will have many Medicaid cuts restored, and Temple University Health System will receive $14.5 million in community access funding. It had previously lost the entire allotment, which was originally budgeted at $17 million. Article
