American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA)


Medicaid Related Provisions (Additional FMAP)

B, Title V, Sec. 5001

Unemployment-Related FMAP Increase - Further opportunities in the ARRA provide for additional FMAP if a state experienced at least a 1.5 percentage point growth in its unemployment rate calculated as the growth between the state's average monthly unemployment rate for the three-consecutive-month period and the lowest average monthly unemployment rate for the state for any three-consecutive-month period proceeding the most recent period, but beginning on or after Jan. 1, 2006.

At this point Wyoming does not qualify for this additional increase.  If Wyoming would qualify for any of the consecutive 3 month periods, the additional FMAP would be as follows:

  • Tier 1 - 2.58
  • Tier 2 - 3.99
  • Tier 3 - 5.39
