State Use of Provider Taxes to Generate Federal Funding

Many States finance a portion of their Medicaid spending by imposing taxes on health care providers. Federal regulations define and set forth the standard for permissible health-care-related taxes (42 CFR §§ 433.55 and 433.68). Previous OIG work raised concerns about States' use of health-care-related taxes. We will review State health-care-related taxes imposed on various Medicaid providers to determine whether the taxes comply with applicable Federal requirements. Our work will focus on the mechanism States use to raise revenue through provider taxes and determine the amount of Federal funding generated.
