The Wisconsin Hospital Association has led a coalition of organizations raising concern over the Medicaid changes proposed in the American Health Care Act (AHCA).  The letter outlines the disadvantages faced by states such as Wisconsin who chose not to adopt Medicaid expansion under the Affordable Care Act.  By 2025, the relative difference in per capita funding provided to non-expansion states versus expansion states is expected to grow to 67% - a cumulative difference of $683.9 billion.  A copy of the June 19 letter to Senator Johnson (link) and an infographic on the topic (link) are available online.
