Medicaid Balancing Incentive Program: A Survey of Participating States

Bookmark and Share

Eighteen states are currently participating in the Medicaid Balancing Incentive Program (BIP) to increase access to home and community-based services (HCBS) as an alternative to institutional care. Established by the ACA, BIP authorizes $3 billion in enhanced federal funding from October 2011 through September 2015. During the summer of 2014, the Kaiser Family Foundation’s Commission on Medicaid and the Uninsured surveyed BIP states about basic program information, progress with implementing the BIP structural requirements, stakeholder engagement, evaluation activities, and the use of enhanced federal funds in support of other Medicaid LTSS rebalancing efforts. This report documents the key findings.
