DHHS is the federal government’s lead agency in dealing with state and local health problems. DHHS operates the nation’s health care programs. If no federal funding goes to a state, then the state provides Medicaid reimbursements. This funding is the government contribution to the health care needs of each state.
DHHS also administers the federal Medicare and Medicaid programs, which give financial aid to low-income people and health care professionals.
Do I qualify for coverage through DHHS if I live in a state other than the one that runs my state’s Medicaid or Medicare?
No. There are limits on who receives Medicaid in each program due to limitations on government spending and cost. Your state’s Medicaid program is responsible for the bulk of the federal and state funding that goes to it.
What is DHHS cost? How much is it?
To cover the cost of health care for 100,000 New Yorkers, DHHS spent 7.5 billion dollars in 2014. It would be possible to add 6 billion dollars by expanding the program to help people in more states.
The total cost for 2016 is $732 billion. The program was able to reduce the costs of Medicaid by 31 percent due to changes in eligibility as well as administrative costs and the use of new technology to better manage and track the program. DHHS is currently expanding eligibility for people who are eligible for Medicaid with an average cut of 17 percent.
To determine the cost and quality of health care for New York, the Affordable Care Act included a study that estimated the costs of health care for low-income families and individuals in each state. The state’s cost per capita is the amount of money that a population would have in their annual income if they did not have health care expenses. The study by researchers at the Center for Urban Health at Harvard and Brown University used information from the American Community Survey to get the number of people in each state who were not insured for health care in 2011. It was then compared to the estimated number of enrollees. The researchers concluded that Medicaid in New York City provides a better bang for its buck for providing health insurance than most other states.
