Medicaid Expansion: A Webinar on Early Analysis of Budget Savings and Revenue Gains
Manatt Health Solutions
A recent report from Manatt Health Solutions reveals that early data from states that expanded Medicaid demonstrate consistent economic benefits, including budget savings and revenue gains. Data from eight states—Arkansas, Colorado, Kentucky, Michigan, New Mexico, Oregon, Washington, West Virginia—show $1.8 billion in budget savings by the end of 2015 as a result of Medicaid expansion. The State Network hosted a webinar to review these findings and to hear from the authors of the report on what this likely means for states that are looking to expand their Medicaid programs.

The United States is in the midst of an unprecedented national effort to manufacture, distribute, and ultimately administer COVID-19 vaccines to all Americans. While the federal government is coordinating distribution of vaccines from manufacturers to states, individual states (and certain municipalities) are responsible for coordinating the various components of infrastructure and operational logistics needed to take the vaccine from federal distribution channels to the arms of Americans. This expert perspective outlines four recommendations for states to engage their managed care plans to assist in efforts to successfully and rapidly vaccinate the Medicaid population.
