The Economic and Fiscal Impact of Medicaid Expansion in Pennsylvania

Econsult Solutions, Inc. was engaged as a research partner with the Pennsylvania Economy League, Inc. (PEL) to provide economic research on the Medicaid expansion in Pennsylvania for PA Health Funders Collaborative (PHFC). Our team was responsible for leading the economic impact and fiscal analysis research and calculations. The economic modeling and analysis was conducted by the Pennsylvania Economy League of Greater Pittsburgh, an affiliate of the Allegheny Conference on Community Development. Dr. Peter Angelides, Principal at Econsult Solutions, Inc. says, “One of the biggest contributions this study makes is incorporating estimates of the savings the state could realize as a result of reductions in state healthcare costs. These funds, plus the new tax revenues generated as a result of expanded economic activity in the Commonwealth, will help to offset the cost of expansion as the federal subsidy declines to 90 percent.”
