comparisons adjusted for inflation (CPI)

Notes

  • Funding for the Children's Medical Security Plan moved from a line item in the Dept. of Public Health to a line item in MassHealth in FY04.
  • 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.
