Medicaid Expansion Briefing: What’s at Stake for States?
The Alliance for Health Reform and the Kaiser Family Foundation present a November 30 briefing to discuss the Medicaid expansion and what’s at stake for states. Speakers address questions around the potential financial impact of the expansion on states, the role of the federal government in financing the expansion, and what it might mean for providers on the ground level, as well as the effect on the safety net population should states choose to opt out.
