State Spending Per Medicaid Enrollee

I don’t post a lot of the information that I get from various press releases, but this one seems interesting.  It ranks the top 10 and bottom 10 states based on Medicaid spending…which is obviously very relevant as we move to more people being covered by Medicaid and also has relevance on physician participation with Medicaid.

This is from CoverageForAll.org and is based on the Kaiser data from statehealthfacts.org:

The 10 states with the highest Medicaid enrollee funding are as follows:
