Fiscal Note - State of Utah - 2014 General Session

HB0401 - Access Utah Program

State Government (UCA 36-12-13(2)(b)):
The bill creates a program to provide health care to individuals with incomes under 100% of the federal poverty level in 2015 and 2016. The actual cost of the program is subject to appropriations. The program could cost up to $150,000,000 one-time General Fund in 2015 and 2016 to provide health care up to 54,400 adults with dependent children or medically frail individuals. Any federal funds obtained could offset state costs. Current federal match rate for Medicaid in FY 2015 is 70.51% and would provide $106,000,000 in federal funds if approved by the federal government.

Local Governments (UCA 36-12-13(2)(c)):
Enactment of this bill likely will not result in direct, measurable costs for local governments.

Direct Expenditures by Utah Residents and Businesses (UCA 36-12-13(2)(d)):
Up to 54,400 adults with dependent children or medically frail individuals may receive access to health care in 2015 and 2016.
