The Implications of Rejecting Medicaid Expansion

Twenty-one states have decided not to expand their Medicaid programs under the Affordable Care Act and another six states remain undecided.

How will these decisions affect these states and their residents?  How many people who might have become eligible for Medicaid will remain uninsured?  How much federal Medicaid revenue will these states forgo?  How will these decisions affect hospitals’ uncompensated care costs?  How might payments to hospitals be affected?

The National Association of Urban Hospitals (NAUH) supports Medicaid expansion in all states.

A new study from the Urban Institute attempts to quantify the answers to these and other questions.  Find “The Cost of Not Expanding Medicaid” hereiStock_000015640638XSmall, on the web site of the Kaiser Commission on Medicaid and the Uninsured.
