UAB Medicaid expansion report http://apr.org en UAB Report: Medicaid Expansion Could Mean $1 Billion in Revenue for Alabama http://apr.org/post/uab-report-medicaid-expansion-could-mean-1-billion-revenue-alabama <P>A big deadline is looming today for state's like Alabama. Washington wants to know which states plan to create&nbsp;their own health insurance exchanges, as part of the Affordable Care Act. Each state that says “no” will leave that job up to&nbsp;the federal government. Today's&nbsp;deadline comes just days after&nbsp;the University of Alabama at Birmingham released a report related to the expansion of Medicaid under the act. The report says if Alabama opts into the Medicaid expansion, it could mean a billion dollars in new tax revenue for the state.
