ABSTRACT
The article discusses the report "States in Need: Congress Should Extend Temporary Increase in Medicaid Funding." The report urges the U.S. Congress to endorse six-month extension of the increased federal Medicaid funding authorized in 2009 under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. The report points out that end of federal relief on December 21, 2010, has forced many states to consider Medicaid and the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) cuts to balance their 2011 budgets.
