Impact statement
This project will save us $5,239 , allowing us to use these funds for operations.

Project Details

What We Need
  • A compilation of research on a specific topic (e.g. industry best practices, literature review, media contacts, industry trends, etc.) including a list of sources
  • Recommendations on areas for further exploration/research
Additional Details

Our commonwealth has expanded Medicaid as of January 2019. Would like to know what the impact of Medicaid expansion was on safety net clinics in other states that have done this

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have patient demographics, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have various service reports, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help

We estimate half of our ~78% uninsured patients would be eligible for Medicaid expansion. We take Medicaid, as well as managed Medicaid, but wonder if having Medicaid will lead patients to using other providers; or, will they stay with us which would increase our woeful patient revenue.
