Published March 9, 2012
This Bloomberg Government Study examines the size and scoop of the projected revenue that the Medicaid program will direct to companies doing business in the 27 states that have filed suit over the constitutionality of the overhaul law. It looks at the impact a ruling against the law would have on managed care plans, nursing homes and inpatient hospitals, the top recipients of Medicaid spending, projected over a five-year period from 2014 to 2018. It also looks at the potential impact on health-care providers in Florida and Virginia, the two lead litigant states.
