Frequently Asked Questions About Meaningful Use: Funding

  1. How does my state get 90/10 Medicaid funding, and are there restrictions on those funds?
  2. How might states tap into some funding resources in the Medicaid advanced planning document?
  3. Will CDC provide funding for MU?
  1. How does my state get 90/10 Medicaid funding, and are there restrictions on those funds?

To receive 90/10 funding, public health must be included in your state’s Medicaid Health Information Technology program or plan, and your state must have an approved advanced planning document.

The Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ (CMS’) cost-sharing and match requirements are different from CDC’s funding arrangement. Medicaid will pay a maximum of 90% of the Medicaid-only portion of your cancer activities and requires at least a 10% match in state funds. The cost share is determined by cost allocation methods that vary across states, but usually are tied to the percentage of Medicaid-eligible professionals or the Medicaid population in your state and the percentage of cases that are Medicaid patients.

  1. How might states tap into some funding resources in the Medicaid advanced planning document?

Some states have been able to get a person to help work on these activities in cancer. States should contact their state Medicaid office, look at their current funding, and see where they can fit into the bigger picture.

CMS’s cost-sharing and match requirements are different from CDC’s funding arrangement. CMS will pay only for the Medicaid portion of your activities, and the highest proportion they will pay is 90%.

You can get support through the Implementation Advanced Planning Document (IAPD) and your Medicaid agency in other ways, such as incorporating education and Web information into the Medicaid planning document.

  1. Will CDC provide funding for MU?

CDC’s National Program of Cancer Registries (NPCR) hopes to receive funding to provide additional tools.
