Health Care Reform Will Cost Indiana $612M to $2.6B

Last updated on Wednesday, September 19, 2012

(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.
