I wanted to share a recent article from Forbes Magazine titled “Obamacare’s Medicaid Enrollment Explosion: A Looming Fiscal Nightmare For States.”
If you have a chance to read it, you may find some of the statistics extremely interesting. One being that Medicaid expansion enrollment rates are 91% higher than what was anticipated. In addition, in 2017 the enhanced federal funding for Obamacare’s Medicaid expansion starts to fade away and states will have to pick up their share of the expense. As it turns out, this “free money” does cost something!
