Congress has proposed using savings from a reduction in the Medicaid provider assessment to offset subsidies to the Stafford student loan program. The current proposal reduces the Medicaid provider assessment threshold from 6 percent to 5.5 percent, beginning on July 1, 2012. While Congress must find ways to reduce federal spending and fund a wide variety of programs, it should consider more productive methods to encourage efficiency in federal health programs, rather than arbitrarily cutting important programs.
