Bush Budget Cuts Federal Health Programs Vital to the Health of All Children
Date:2/8/2008

Nearly $19 Billion in Medicaid and Discretionary Spending Cuts

ALEXANDRIA, Va., Feb. 8 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- President Bush's Fiscal Year 2009 budget cuts federal health programs vital to the future of health and health care for all children. On top of an $18.2 billion cut in Medicaid, the nation's single largest payer of children's health care for working families, the President's budget also cuts $700 million from discretionary health programs that children depend on, ranging from poison control hotlines to funding for training children's doctors.

The following are examples of the many programs targeted in the President's budget for reductions.

-- Cut: In the face of an economic downturn, the budget would cut federal Medicaid funding in ways that will negatively impact children's eligibility for coverage and access to health care, as well as the providers that serve them. Medicaid, pays for the care of more than 29 million children ($18.2 billion);

-- Eliminate: The budget would kill the Children's Hospitals Graduate Medical Education program that enables children's hospitals to train more than one-third of all pediatricians, half of all pediatric subspecialists, and the majority of all pediatric research scientists devoted to biomedical advancements in children's health care ($301 million);

-- Eliminate: The budget would eliminate the Emergency Medical Services for Children program that funds emergency services to assure their capacity to provide a high standard of pediatric emergency medical care ($19 million);

-- Cut: The budget would cut Poison Control Centers by 37 percent ($10 million) jeopardizing the statewide and regional poison control hotlines that parents rely on to save the lives of their children, who account for more than 60 percent of all calls to these centers; and

-- Level fund: The Maternal and Child Health Block Grant that serves 27.5 million children would be frozen $666 millio
