Medicaid Long Term Care Expenditures, FY2000

The data presented in Tables A through N are derived from HCFA 64 reports submitted by states to the Health Care Financing Administration. The HCFA 64 is the form used by states to claim Federal Financial Participation (FFP) for state Medicaid outlays, and is audited by the Federal government. It is thus considered to be one of the most reliable sources of information on state Medicaid spending.
