Medicaid Expansion in Mississippi: A Literature Review


As of the writing of this review, Mississippi was 1 of 12 states to have not expanded its Medicaid program under the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Recent discussion on a possible expansion within the state, however, has demonstrated the need for timely, non-partisan research on this topic. To that end, the Center for Mississippi Health Policy contracted with The Hilltop Institute to conduct a study of the economic impact of a (hypothetical) Medicaid expansion, with a focus on Mississippi’s Medicaid program, state budget, and provider landscape. As part of the development of the analytic plan for the study, Hilltop conducted this literature review in order to document relevant findings that can help inform the study design.
