Dobson | DaVanzo Receives The Commonwealth Fund Grant to Study the Impact of Medicaid Work Requirements on Providers

Published Monday, June 10, 2019

The Commonwealth Fund has awarded a grant to Dobson | DaVanzo to expand upon our work that shows how Medicaid work requirements could affect hospital finances. Previous issue brief prepared by Dobson | DaVanzo estimated the number of Medicaid enrollees that would lose coverage and in turn impact hospitals’ Medicaid revenues, uncompensated care costs, and operating margins, in 13 states who had either approved or had pending Medicaid waivers to impose work requirements for certain eligibility groups. The upcoming work will expand upon our prior brief by including 5 additional states that have requested Medicaid work requirement waivers.
