Cone Health Study: Expansion Helps NC Economy

Thursday, January 15, 2015

Authored by researchers at George Washington University in Washington, D.C., the study includes data for all 100 North Carolina counties, and concludes that nearly 500,000 currently uninsured residents could gain coverage if the state expands its Medicaid eligibility requirements. The report shows that by 2020 the North Carolina workforce could grow by more than 43,000 jobs, and the state’s economy could gain tens of billions in business revenue if the state expands Medicaid eligibility requirements.
