How to read the Health Care Access Fund statement
Each state budget forecast includes the release of an updated Health Care Access Fund (HCAF) balance sheet. While this document can be confusing, it contains critical information about how the provider tax is used. The HCAF was created to hold provider tax revenues, in addition to several smaller revenue sources. The HCAF, like the provider tax, was created to invest in efforts that reduce the number of Minnesotans without health insurance, address growing health care costs, and improve the quality of health care services for all Minnesotans.
