STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
This legislation allows Idaho to opt into the "Breast and Cervical
Cancer Prevention and Treatment Act of 2000." By passing the
"Every Woman Matters" bill, Idaho can receive an enhanced federal
Medicaid match rate for eligible women. In Idaho, this means
every $1 from the state will be matched by nearly $4 in federal
We are already paying for these services of eligible women through
indigencey, and catastrophic funds. With this new federal program
80% would be covered. After consultation with Health & Welfare
and our legislative budget office these are the numbers agreed on as
very, very close to actual. Medical inflation is estimated at 3% per
year. Increase 1 per BC, 1 every other year CC.
