Medicaid Expansion in Nebraska

This report examines the rural implications of the new Medicaid initiative as provided for in the Affordable Care Act. We examine the fiscal and economic impacts - additional revenue provided to the state, jobs created and costs to consumers of uncompensated care without expansion - of the state’s  participation in the expansion of Medicaid.

The report concludes that significant implications for Nebraska’s small towns and rural residents underlie the decision of whether the state will participate in expanding Medicaid coverage.
