"NEW EVIDENCE ON THE ACA'S MEDICAID EXPANSION: LESSONS FROM EARLY EXPANSION STATES"
 The Affordable Care Act will expand Medicaid in 2014 to millions of low-income adults in states that choose to participate.  Several states chose to expand Medicaid eligibility under the ACA even earlier in 2010-2011, to some of the same individuals targeted by the ACA's expansion.  Using administrative and survey data, plus in-depth interviews with Medicaid directors in six states, we examined the implementation strategies and challenges experienced by state officials, and present early results on the impact of these expansions on enrollment, coverage, and crowd-out.
