Health and Economic Effects of Medicaid Expansion

A Michigan Medicine Frontier Seminar

Medicaid expansion in Michigan Medicaid expansion in Michigan
Medicaid expansion is much in the news these days, in Michigan and beyond.

Researchers from the U-M Institute for Healthcare Policy and Innovation are at the forefront of studying the impacts of expanding Medicaid to all low-income adults under the Affordable Care Act. An IHPI team holds the state contract to carry out the official evaluation of Michigan's expansion program, called the Healthy Michigan Plan, which now covers more than 650,000 Michiganders. Other IHPI members study other aspects of the issue.

This talk, presented as part of the Frontier Seminar series organized by Michigan Medicine's Chief Scientific Officer, will focus on the economic and health effects of the Medicaid expansion in Michigan. The talk will feature Renu Tipirneni, Assistant Professor of Internal Medicine, and Sarah Miller, Assistant Professor of Business Economics and Public Policy. John Z. Ayanian, IHPI director and leader of the Healthy Michigan Plan evaluation, will serve as moderator.

The seminar will be held from 4–5 pm in the Ford Auditorium at the University Hospital. The fast-paced hour will include two 20-minute presentations followed by 20 minutes of interaction between the two speakers, Dr. Ayanian, and the audience. Informal discussion will follow at a reception.
