Medicaid Expansion and Newly Eligible Coloradans: A Demographic Portrait

April 19, 2013
A number of analyses have looked at the costs,
affordability, benefits and economic impact of
expanding Medicaid eligibility in Colorado.
This data analysis by the Colorado Health
Institute delves deeper into the characteristics
of the Coloradans who would become eligible
for Medicaid. The information creates a portrait
of members of this newly eligible population
– where and how much they work, how healthy
they are and how they could be expected to use
the health care system.
Understanding their demographics, employment
and health characteristics can help policymakers
make a more informed decision about whether
Medicaid expansion makes sense in Colorado.
If the Medicaid expansion is approved, this
information will be useful in identifying
appropriate outreach efforts and anticipating
challenges to successful implementation.
