Comparing the Affordable Care Act’s Financial Impact on Safety-Net Hospitals in States That Expanded Medicaid and Those That Did Not
Examines how Medicaid expansion affected the financial health of safety-net hospitals, and compares hospitals in expansion states with hospitals in non-expansion states. Findings are based on data from Medicare's fiscal year 2012-2015 hospital cost reports, and explain changes in operating margins, Medicaid inpatient days, Medicaid revenues and costs, and uncompensated care costs.
