Impact of Medicaid Expansion on the Kansas State Budget

Prepared for the Kansas Grantmakers in Health

In a new report for the Kansas Grantmakers in Health, Manatt Health reviews the implications of Medicaid expansion on the Kansas state budget. Drawing on the state's fiscal impact analysis, publicly available data on Kansas Medicaid costs and the experiences of states that expanded in 2014, the report concludes that Kansas should be able to generate sufficient savings and revenue gains to cover the costs of expansion between 2016 and 2020. In the report, Manatt Health identifies areas where early expansion states saw savings or revenue and suggests where Kansas might also see savings and new revenue sufficient to cover its costs of expansion.
