The Department of Health and Human Services yesterday issued a report summarizing previous research on how the expansion of Medicaid eligibility under the Affordable Care Act has made health care more accessible and affordable for eligible low-income adults. Among other findings, expansion states have seen a larger decline in the number of uninsured adults than non-expansion states, and a decline in hospital admissions for uninsured patients. HHS Secretary Sylvia Burwell said the administration “remains committed to working with all remaining states toward Medicaid expansion so they too can realize lower uninsured rates, healthier populations and significant economic benefits.”
