Levy et al. find Michigan's Medicaid expansion boosted state's economy while increasing number of insured

a PSC In The News reference

"Medicaid expansion gives $2.3B boost to Michigan" - Detroit News. 01/04/2017.

An analysis of the impact of the Healthy Michigan Plan, supported by Federal funds expanding Medicaid under the ACA, finds that the Plan has had a positive economic ripple effect, generating new jobs, increasing personal spending and tax revenue, and saving money on other state-supported programs. The study, by Helen Levy and colleagues, looks at current and expected future benefits of the expansion. Levy says: “The Healthy Michigan Plan has not only covered more than 600,000 Michiganders – most of whom had been uninsured – it has also lightened the economic load on the state, on families and businesses, and on health care providers. Federal spending through Medicaid gives a big boost to the state’s economy.”
