budget development influences
Budget Development Influences
  • Beneficiaries
    • Aging population with too few resources for long term care
    • Unrestricted access to medical care with no responsibility for healthy choices and outcomes
    • Significant increase in children diagnosed with autism
    • Substance abuse pervades many lives and programs
  • Providers
    • Rate structure is inflexible, non-uniform, and inadequate in some areas
    • Payment methods do not promote/reward efficiency, innovation and outstanding performance of providers
  • Federal Funding
    • Federal budget initiatives and changes in federal program management place federal funding at risk
