This report looks at the economic effects of Medicaid expansion in Montana.

Findings show that Montana’s Medicaid expansion introduces $650 million into the economy each year, supporting 6,000 new jobs and $400 million in personal income.

The report was commissioned by the Montana Healthcare Foundation and Headwaters Foundation and produced by Bryce Ward of ABMJ Consulting.
