The Real Winner in Medicaid Expansion New York

Medicaid expansion would provide states some savings while simultaneously increasing other expenditures. But only 10 states—those with already bloated Medicaid programs—would be net savers. New York would benefit most—it would save $33.8 billion in Medicaid expenditures from 2014 to 2022, nearly matching the spending increases from 40 other states.

Net Savers:

$48.0 BILLION

$33.8 BILLION New York

$14.2 BILLION Connecticut Delaware Hawaii Iowa Maine Maryland Massachusetts Vermont Wisconsin

Net Payers:

$37.9 BILLION
