Improving the quality and cost-effectiveness of publicly financed health care

Medicaid Expansion Population

Under health reform, an estimated 16-20 million Americans will be eligible to enroll in Medicaid. To prepare for this new population, it is critical that Medicaid stakeholders develop a better understanding of these individuals and their care needs. CHCS is working to more clearly understand the needs of the expansion population to help states and health plans in preparing for these new beneficiaries.
