The Economic Impact of Medicaid Expansion in Georgia

Healthcare Georgia Foundation commissioned an analysis of the economic impact of Medicaid expansion in Georgia. The analysis, conducted and reported by William Custer, PhD, J. Mac Robinson College of Business at Georgia State University, found that expansion of the program could result in significant statewide economic activity. Dr. Custer utilized the IMPLAN model to produce estimates of economic impact based on data provided by the state including 1) the number of new enrollees in the Medicaid Program as a result of expansion, 2) the costs of medical care for those enrollees, and 3) the state’s share of Medicaid expansion.
