Medicaid Cost Containment

2005 Medicaid Cost Containment Strategies in North Carolina and Other States

May 24, 2005

Medicaid cost containment is a challenge faced by North Carolina and states across the nation. Decisions about how to regulate Medicaid spending must not be based entirely on budgetary spending targets; they must be informed by sound policy.
National Medicaid experts presented current policy trends and research related to containing Medicaid costs. Nearly 40 legislators, legislative staff, agency representatives and others attended.
The 2005 NCFIS was convened by:

  • The Center for Child and Family Policy, affiliated with the Terry Sanford Institute of Public Policy at Duke University
  • Institute of Government at the School of Government, The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
