Texas will lose $9.2 billion in 2022; Florida says goodbye to $5 billion; Georgia is out $4.9 billion. A new report details just how much states are losing because they don’t want to expand Medicaid under Obamacare, and it’s not chump change.
Red states may be sticking to their Republican beliefs in small government, but the Commonwealth Fund finds they are passing up billions in federal funding by saying no to the Medicaid expansion.
“By choosing not to participate, Texas, for example, will forgo an estimated $9.58 billion in federal funding in 2022. Taking into account federal taxes paid by Texas residents, the net cost to taxpayers in the state in 2022 will be more than $9.2 billion,” the report by Sherry Glied and Stephanie Ma of New York University says.

Capitol Imaging Services is the largest independent radiology practice of its type serving the Southeastern United States. Not only do we perform the scan, such as an ultrasound or arthrogram, we provide the radiology expertise to review test images and issue critical findings to physicians and other healthcare providers.
Capitol Imaging Services also often lowers out of pocket expenses for people undergoing exams. For people with unfulfilled health insurance deductibles or no insurance coverage, that’s a major financial advantage. And, this advantage is enjoyed without sacrificing quality of imaging technology, reporting or radiological expertise.
