ABSTRACT
The article reports that U.S. states may face massive cutbacks in Medicaid programs in the coming months as extended federal funding is set to expire. The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act allocated 87 billion dollars to stabilize state Medicaid programs from October 2008 through December 2010. For FY 2011, forty-one states have already estimated that they will have budget gaps totaling 102 billion dollars .
