Notes

  • In FY17, approximately $8 million for MassHealth administrative and IT funding shifted into the Executive Office of Health and Human Services. Funding moved from several small administrative line items as well as approximately $3.7 million from the Children's Behavioral Health Initiative (4000-0920).
  • Starting in FY10, this new centralized information technology account received funding previously allocated to other accounts.
  • Funding for MassHealth and related health reform programs often shifts among line item appropriations and special trust funds from year to year, so it is helpful to look at total funding, rather than at individual line items to get a sense of funding over time. In many years, the Administration has also been allowed to transfer funding among the MassHealth program line items without additional legislative approval. This means that there may be a meaningful difference between the budgeted amount and actual spending for individual line items, and that funding budgeted for one line item is ultimately spent in another.
