Supplementary notes

* Federal outlays are the funds drawn from the U.S. Treasury by the States. The State and total outlays reflect spending as reported by the States for the purposes of drawing Federal funding from the U.S. Treasury. Expenditures represent the spending as it was paid by the State to health care plans or providers. While expenditures and outlays are generally similar, they are not equal mainly due to the timing differences between the States paying for services and the States receiving Federal funds. Neither outlays nor expenditures include Title XIX costs in support of the Children's Health Insurance Program.
** Collections from Medicare Part B for the Qualifying Individuals (QI) program and from other miscellaneous sources.
