Expanded coverage of preventive services by Medicaid

To expand the number of Americans receiving preventive care, the law provides new funding to state Medicaid programs that choose to cover preventive services for patients at little or no cost. State Medicaid programs will have the opportunity to receive a one percentage point increase in their federal matching rate if they cover the immunizations recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) and certain preventive services without charging cost-sharing for these services.
