Since 2014, states have had the option to expand Medicaid eligibility to include adults with incomes under 138 percent of the federal poverty level. Under this option, the federal government covers 90 percent of the cost of the expansion eligibility, a significantly higher rate than it covers for most Medicaid populations and services. These financial terms were further enhanced by the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARP), which provides newly expanding states with a significant increase in Medicaid funding for most other Medicaid populations. Despite these significant financial incentives, 12 states have yet to adopt the expansion.

In a new webinar prepared with the support of the Commonwealth Fund and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, Manatt examines the fiscal impact of Medicaid expansion in Mississippi, including lessons learned for other states. Click here to register free. Key topics include:

  • Key costs and offsetting savings that states can expect under expansion
  • The impact of ARP on the overall fiscal impact of expansion
  • The potential for additional financial benefit under proposed federal legislation
  • Mississippi-specific fiscal impact projections
  • Key methodological considerations for analysts assessing the impact of expansion in other states

This webinar is based on a recent report on the same topic from Manatt Health developed with the support of the Commonwealth Fund and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
