Medicaid Expansion in Mississippi Testimony

December 10th, 2012

Testimony of Ed Sivak: Hope Enterprise Corporation and Mississippi Economic Policy Center (MEPC)Before the Joint Meeting of the Senate Public Health and Insurance Committees on “Medicaid Expansion”

Medicaid Expansion is a Good Deal
• Creates over 9,000 jobs • Connects 310,000 Mississippians to health insurance

Not Expanding Medicaid is harmful
• Hospitals will need to layoff staff and cut services • Puts Mississippi at a competitive disadvantage
