Health care reform is a continuously evolving process. The States and the Federal Government have struggled with policy issues
to combat escalating Medicaid expenditures while ensuring access and quality of care to an ever-expanding population. In the
absence of national health care reform, States are increasingly relying on Federal waivers to develop innovative approaches
to address a myriad of issues associated with the present health care delivery system. This article provides a summary of
State health care reform efforts that have been initiated under Federal waiver authority.
