The Impact of Medicaid Expansion on the Health of Communities
Play Video

The purpose of this webinar is to speak to what the expansion of Medicaid has meant to the most vulnerable populations within the state–given their better access to care. Louisiana is a great state to review as it did not expand immediately after ACA, but has had nearly 7 years of it.

Additionally, it will be interesting to know the process and opinions around expanding Medicaid to the most recent state to do so, North Carolina. Finally, as Texas is one of the largest states in the US–both by population and land–it will be interesting to hear how not having Medicaid expansion has impacted the state and the care available for its most vulnerable.
