Health Leaders Media

The nation’s largest hospital associations have banded together to ask the Obama administration to resist efforts by governors to reduce maintenance-of-effort funding for Medicaid in their cash-strapped states.

“We want to reiterate our strong support for the Medicaid MOE requirement that was part of the Affordable Care Act, and urge you to continue to resist efforts to erode the important coverage protections that this provision is intended to ensure,” the associations said in a joint letter Tuesday to Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius.
