• Healthcare Triage News: Medicaid for Children Leads to Better Outcomes Later in Life

    The recent election has caused many to question whether significant changes are about to happen to Medicaid. Repeal of the Affordable Care Act would, of course, lead to the elimination of the Medicaid expansion, which could result in significant numbers of adults losing their coverage overnight.

    But even without repeal, many Republican replacement proposals also result in significant changes to Medicaid, whether it be through funding, eligibility, or benefits.

    This episode was adapted from a post I wrote for the AcademyHealth blog. Links to further reading and sources can be found there.
