Organization

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) administers the Medicare program and works in partnership with states to administer Medicaid and the State Children’s Health Insurance Program (SCHIP). About one in four Americans receives health coverage.

Medicare, the nation’s largest health insurance program, is a direct payment program and its funding levels are not included in the CMS grant totals. Grant programs which support the administration of some Medicare services are included in CMS totals. Examples of key CMS grant programs include the Medicare State Survey and Certification Group; CMS Research, Demonstrations and Evaluations; Medicare Hospital Insurance; and Medicare Supplementary Medical Insurance.

Medicaid provides healthcare to millions of low-income families with children, elderly, blind or disabled persons. It is the Department’s largest grant program in terms of funding levels. The SCHIP allows states to initiate and/or expand health insurance to uninsured, low-income children.

In addition to these programs CMS administers a number of quality-focused activities that benefit all Americans. CMS program objectives include:

  • Building and Maintaining a Skilled, Committed, and Highly Motivated Workforce
  • Accurate and Predictable Payments
  • High-Value Health Care
  • Confident, Informed Consumers
  • Collaborative Partnerships

Treemap

A treemap is a chart resembling the concentric circles of a “tree trunk,” that compares FY 2013 and FY 2012 non-discretionary grant program awards by Grantee Type, Grantee Class and Award activity, and displays grant information in several ways. It shows the number of dollars awarded for a type of grant in a fiscal year, the proportion of dollar awards for the type of grant in the current fiscal year, and how much the award dollar value changed from the previous fiscal year.

Closed-ended entitlement program - A type of non- discretionary grant program where the award amount constitutes an upper limit on the amount of funds the federal government may pay for allowable programmatic activities.

Open-ended entitlement program - A type of non- discretionary grant program where, based on compliance with programmatic requirements, e.g., provision of specified services to eligible beneficiaries, the OPDIV is required to reimburse the recipient (generally a state) for all or a portion of eligible costs and there is no upper limit on the amount of funds the federal government will pay for allowable services and activities (as specified in the governing statute and implementing regulations).
