States may see federal Medicaid funding decline up to 39 percent under repeal

The estimates were presented to governors in a closed-door session with top Trump administration officials.

The Senate’s Obamacare repeal bill would result in reductions in federal Medicaid funding to states ranging from 27 percent to 39 percent by 2036, according to a presentation made at the National Governors Association summer meeting here.

The estimates — developed by the consulting firm Avalere Health — were presented to governors in a closed-door session on Saturday that also featured top Trump administration officials, including HHS Secretary Tom Price and CMS Administrator Seema Verma.
