their maximums when recipients require medical care or have other special
needs, and in some States maximums are sufficiently high that payments are
limited only in a few instances. Since the usual State maximums shown in
tables 1 and 2 relate to money payments to recipients, they exclude all
types of medical vendor payments on behalf of recipients, including premium
or per capital payments for this purpose.


Reductions


in Assistance Payments


When States are unable to meet need as determined under their standards
they reduce payments on a percentage or flat reduction basis (table 3).
These limitations may be used in the absence of, or in conjunction with,
legal or administrative arimams. A maximum limits the amount of assist-
ance that may be paid to persons whose determined need exceeds that maximum,
whereas percentage or flat reductions usually have the effect of lowering
payments to most or all recipients to a level below that of determined need.
In October 1968, percentage or flat reductions were being applied to
monthly payments by 11 States, under 18 programs. Two States applied such
reductions to all four programs; one, to AFDC and APTD; and eight to
AFDC only.
