The Economic Impact of Expanding Medicaid: A PARCA Report (virtual discussion)

Medicaid expansion would be a major financial benefit for Alabama and would have a significant economic impact across the state, according to a recent report from the Public Affairs Research Council of Alabama.

Join us virtually on April 12 for a presentation of the findings in The Economic Impact of Expanding Medicaid in Alabama. Jennifer Green, Director of the Center for Economic Development and Business Research at Jacksonville State University, will present the report findings and answer questions about the data.

Tuesday, April 12, 2022

Over the next six years, expanding Medicaid in Alabama could:

  • Save the state almost $400 million per year – more than enough to cover the cost of expansion.
  • Create an average of 20,083 new jobs per year.
  • See the state’s uninsured rate decline by 43%.

Take a look at the report by visiting the Cover Alabama website.

Following the presentation Q&A, we will discuss what you can do now to advocate for expanding Medicaid in Alabama.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email with information about joining the meeting.
