1 Overview Medicaid Expansion and the 1115 Waiver Program May 9, 2013

2 Potential Medicaid Expansion Estimated Financial Impact for Dallas County

3 Potential Medicaid Expansion Affordable Care Act Under the Affordable Care Act, the Federal government has offered 100% funding for expansion of the Texas Medicaid program program expansion would cover Texas residents who earn up to 138% of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL) the 100% Federal funding would be provided through 2016, after which time the Federal share declines to 90% funding by 2020. 3

4 Dallas County Impact Demographic Impact Dallas County has approximately 600,000 uninsured residents. The Affordable Care Act will provide subsidies to uninsured residents which - absent Medicaid expansion, should reduce the number of uninsured to approximately 465,000. Medicaid expansion would reduce the number to approximately 334,000 meaning, an additional 131,000 Dallas County residents would receive Medicaid coverage As a result, Dallas County healthcare providers would be paid $580 million Today these must be covered by safety net hospitals Source: Center for Public Policy Priorities 4

5 Impact for Dallas County Providers Financial Impact on Providers Although overall base payments would increase $580 million Other supplemental payments (Uncompensated Care / UC) currently received would be reduced Net Dallas County providers would realize approximately $351 million. Statewide this would result in additional provider payments of over $1.6 billion/year Without Medicaid expansion there will be no incremental Medicaid payments Costs fall to the taxpayers and charity programs Texan’s tax dollars go to fund other states’ Medicaid Expansion Programs 5
