Medicaid expansion produces long-term impact on insurance coverage rates in community health centers.
This study assesses changes in insurance status of patients visiting community health centers (CHCs) comparing states that expanded Medicaid to those that did not. Rates of uninsured visits decreased pre- to post- Affordable Care Act with greater drops in expansion (-57 percent) versus nonexpansion (-20 percent) states. Medicaid-insured visits increased 60 percent in expansion states while remaining unchanged in nonexpansion states.
