  2. National Perspective on Medicaid • Medicaid: • is the nation’s major public health program for low-income Americans • finances health and long-term care services for more than 50 million people • supports tens of thousands of health care providers throughout the country • Medicaid spending enable the program to make significant contributions to state economies in terms of jobs, income and overall economic activity Source: Kaiser Family Foundation – The Role of Medicaid in State Economies: A look at the Research (January 2009)

  3. Kaiser Family Foundation • “As state policymakers grapple with closing budget shortfalls, many look to Medicaid for savings, as it is a major component of state budgets. However, it is argued that cutting Medicaid not only adversely affects the beneficiaries and providers, but also may have an impact on the larger state economy.”

  5. Key Findings (KFF Study) • “If the Medicaid program were shut down and the funds returned to taxpayers who saved/spent the funds according to typical consumer expenditure patterns, employment in North Carolina would fall by an estimated 67,400 jobs and labor income would decline by $2.83 billion, due to the labor-intensive nature of Medicaid expenditure.” SOURCE: North Carolina Journal of Medicine, 2008 • “The administration of the Oklahoma Medicaid program creates an economic impact on the economy of Oklahoma. In FY 2006, total business spending generated from the Medicaid program was $8.0 billion. Additionally, 99,036 jobs were created, income increased by $2.8 billion and tax revenue increased by $315.0 million.” SOURCE: Oklahoma Health Care Authority • “In 2004, federal matching funds to the state of Missouri generated $5.82 billion in economic activity, support 79,892 jobs in the state and increased wages and other income earned by Missourians by $2.8 billion, which generated $211 million in tax revenue.” SOURCE: Missouri Foundation for Health, 2005)
