Health Authority weighs Medicaid cuts

(Continued)

NORMAN —

The federal match is being cut because Oklahoma’s economy is doing better than those of other states. The formula-based reduction has nothing to do with Oklahoma’s rejection of the Obama administration’s proposed Medicaid expansion, Kilgore said.

The budget approved by the Legislature and signed into law by Gov. Mary Fallin last month provided the agency with essentially flat funding for 2015.

“It basically is what is,” Kilgore said. “It’s our need versus what our appropriation was, and trying to balance those two.”
