Unsustainable Medicaid Expansion Would Exceed Third of Population

“The expansion of Medicaid required under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act will drive state Medicaid expenditures beyond sustainable limits, a joint study released today by the Oklahoma Council of Public Affairs (OCPA) and the Cato Institute projects.

The report, Projecting Oklahoma’s Medicaid Expenditure Growth Under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, estimates the required expansion will increase Oklahoma’s Medicaid enrollment to 36 percent of the population by 2023 and will add an additional $11.4 billion to state program expenditures between 2014 and 2023.”
