Medicaid is, for some states, an even bigger expense than education. That’s just one reason to try new reforms. The James Madison Institute highlights a pilot program enacted in Florida.

JMI president Bob McClure says: “Medicaid spending in Florida. It is absolutely unsustainable. … Continuing down this path, state government would not be able to fund core functions such as education and public safety without massive tax increases.”

There’s a better solution than a federal expansion of Medicaid: “Currently, Florida has two pilot projects in Broward and Duval counties that allow Medicaid patients to allocate their own dollars to fit their individual needs. In essence, this pilot project brings market discipline to an out-of-control entitlement program.”
