The Missouri Hospital Association and Missouri Foundation for Health released a report on November 28th entitled “The Enrollment and Economic Impacts of Medicaid Expansion on Missouri.”

Dobson | DaVanzo was commissioned, along with the Department of Health Management and Informatics (HMI) at the University of Missouri School of Medicine, to determine the potential economic impacts if the state participates in Medicaid expansion under the Affordable Care Act. Two simulation models were developed based on the Impact Analysis for Planning (IMPLAN) model building software to estimate: (1) increased enrollment in and direct federal and state expenditures on Medicaid, and (2) the value-added economic and tax impact on the state’s economy, as well as private employer health insurance premiums.
