Colorado wins $43 million Medicaid bonus for its kids programs (Denver Post)

December 20, 2012 – Colorado won a $43 million bonus from federal Medicaid officials Wednesday as reward for enrolling more children in the insurance program, the largest of awards to 23 states. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services announced $306 million in bonuses for improving access for children, saying, “We are proud to reward states that are reducing enrollment barriers and connecting kids to coverage.” The bonuses are meant to help offset the added expenses states incur when they increase the number of children with state insurance. Medicaid costs are split evenly between federal and state governments.
