A  new  report from the GG/ RCHN CHF Research Collaborative,  estimates that more than 5 million health center patients would have gained coverage had all states participated in a sweeping Medicaid expansion.  However, with nearly half of all CHCs located in states that have opted out of the expansion, a million uninsured CHC patients who would have been covered under a nationwide expansion will likely be left without the protection of health insurance.  Further, the health centers in these states stand to lose over $555 million in revenue they would have received had their states expanded Medicaid. The report’s  lead authors Peter Shin and Sara Rosenbaum  and health center CEO Rachel Gonzales-Hanson present the analysis and report findings, and discuss implications for  community health centers and the patients and communities they serve.
