Early evidence is in on the impact of the Medicaid Expansion. In addition to reductions in the uninsured rates, expansion states are seeing economic benefits, including budget savings and revenue gains. So far 29 states and the District of Columbia have expanded Medicaid, while others continue to debate whether (and how) to expand. This webinar reviewed findings from recent impact analyses, considered the implications for sustainability of the expansions, and discussed prospects for expansion in additional states. Speakers included: Deborah Bachrach of Manatt Health Solutions and Heather Howard of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation State Health Reform Assistance Network.
