Bookmark and Share

This report, prepared by SHADAC, Oregon Health and Science University (OHSU), and Manatt Health Solutions, analyzes the financial impact and estimates the potential costs and benefits of the ACA Medicaid expansion in Oregon, including the effect on state general funds, other state funds, and the overall impact on health care expenditures. It estimates that if Oregon opts for Medicaid expansion, it will provide coverage to more than 240,000 newly eligible Oregonians and encourage approximately 20,000 previously eligible Oregonians to enroll in coverage. This will generate $11.3 billion in federal health care expenditures and a net savings of $79 million to the state general fund.
