New Medicaid Estimates

According to a new cost-benefit analysis from the Colorado Health Institute, expanding Medicaid would cost Colorado about $1 billion over 10 years and add an estimated 240,000 to the state’s Medicaid rolls, including as many as 73,000 people who could switch from private to public health insurance.
