(INDIANAPOLIS) - It will cost the state of Indiana anywhere from $612 million to $2.6 billion to implement the federal Affordable Care Act, the Indiana Family and Social Services Administration (FSSA) said Tuesday.
WTHR reports, the cost would be $2.6 billion over seven years if Medicaid is expanded. It's expected to increase by $612 million without expansion.
Milliman Inc, the state's actuary, provided the new estimates to the FSSA. The recent US Supreme Court decision makes a Medicaid expansion optional for states.
