New Study Shows Medicaid Expansion Reduces Mortality Rates

In a recent study published in The New England Journal of Medicine, researchers found that residents of states with expanded Medicaid coverage will likely live longer, have better access to care, improved coverage and improved self-reported health.   Researchers at the Harvard School of Public Health compared adult populations in three states with expanded coverage  (Maine, New York and Arizona) with neighboring states that did not expand coverage to better understand the impacts of Medicaid expansion on mortality and health care.
