The rules governing Medicaid programs vary by location. Although subject to federal standards, individual states administer the Medicaid, CHIP and EPSDT programs with the authority and flexibility to determine who is eligible, design and coverage, health care delivery models, benefits and methods for paying providers and hospitals. Because of this flexibility at the state level, there is tremendous variation across state Medicaid programs.
