Datapoint: GA Medicaid Expansion Could Bring Coverage to 300,000 People

Nearly 300,000 people would gain health coverage if Georgia expanded Medicaid, according to a new analysis prepared by the Urban Institute with support from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. The report found about 28% of the uninsured people in the state would gain insurance coverage if Georgia expanded Medicaid eligibility to up to 138% of the federal poverty level, and the state would go from having the eighth-highest uninsured rate to the 24th-highest. Georgia is one of 10 states that have not expanded Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act. It currently serves 2,762,293 Medicaid and CHIP beneficiaries, with 75% enrolled in managed care plans.
