States' Medicaid Agency Claims for Indian Health Service Expenditures

The Federal government pays its share of a State's Medicaid expenditures based on the Federal Medical Assistance Percentage (FMAP), which varies depending on the State's relative per capita income. States' regular FMAPs range from a low of 50 percent to a high of 83 percent; however, States receive a 100-percent FMAP for expenditures related to services received through Indian Health Service (IHS) facilities. In Federal fiscal years 2016 through 2018, States claimed $6.6 billion in expenditures at the IHS services FMAP, all of which was federally funded. We will analyze selected States' methodologies for identifying expenditures claimed at the IHS services FMAP and determine whether the States claimed these expenditures in accordance with Federal requirements.
