Medicaid Expansion Debate Will Affect Hospitals

The Medicaid expansion debate in many states has activated some hospitals to voice their support for the expansion, touting its economic benefits. With the Affordable Care Act-mandated reduction of fee-for-service Medicare reimbursement and federal compensation to hospitals for free care to the poor, hospitals are expected to lose more than $300 billion over 10 years.

However, it is thought that Medicaid expansion and mandatory health insurance will cover an additional 48 million people to pay for hospital services, which is expected to absorb some of the financial loss.

Last year, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that Medicaid expansion would be optional for states, a ruling which could potentially alter the original economic balance of the Affordable Care Act and affect hospitals' budgets. The Academy will monitor this debate as it affects states and members who work in hospitals. Learn more about the Affordable Care Act.
