Trump aide: Medicaid block grants will ‘cut out the fraud’

States may receive their Medicaid funding in block grants under President Donald Trump’s plan to replace the Affordable Care Act, one of his advisers reported this weekend.

White House adviser Kellyanne Conway, appearing on Sunday Today, said that moving the program to a block grant setup — with each state receiving a fixed amount of money — would make sure “those who are closest to the people in need will be administering” the Medicaid.

Conway added that block grants would “really cut out the fraud, waste and abuse,” and beneficiaries would “get the help directly.”
