Final FY 2017 FMAPs

On September 30, the Bureau of Economic Analysis released revised state personal income and per capita personal income data for 2014 and prior years. The release allows calculation of the final fiscal year (FY) 2017 Federal Medical Assistance Percentage (FMAP).

FMAPs are used to calculate each state’s reimbursement rate for Medicaid and other grant programs such as Title IV-E adoption assistance and foster care. The Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) uses an enhanced FMAP, which is higher than the Medicaid matching rate.

The table below summarizes changes in state FY 2017 FMAPs based on the final data.
