Opting out of Medicare Expansion is costing lives: over 7,100 deaths nation wide!

Interesting study (by a Harvard medical student).  It is an estimate of the total numbers of people that will be covered by insurance with/without medicare expansion.  They they use prior estimates of how non-coverage translates in to real death rates.

For example

NY (which has opted in): 

  • currently uninsured 2 185 195
  • projected uninsured with ACA  1 122 130 (49% decline in uninsured)

PA (which has opted out)

  • currently uninsured 1 520 622
  • projected uninsured with ACA 1 229 171 (19.2% decline in uninsured)
