This week the Montana Nurses Association released a fact sheet highlighting the impact of repealing Medicaid expansion in Montana. The numbers are frightening.
- Coverage Revenues Lost: 142,000 Montanans stand to lose their health coverage. Montana stands to lose $10 billion in federal funding for Medicaid, CHIP, and financial assistance for marketplace coverage.
- Jobs Lost: Total employment in Montana would drop by 2.3%; 10,599 jobs in Montana would be lost, this would eliminate 22.7 out of every 1,000 jobs.
