HIV hospitalizations decreased in Medicaid expansion states

A new study from Health Affairs examines the influence of the Affordable Care Act's optional state Medicaid expansion on insurance coverage and health outcomes for hospitalized patients with HIV. The study found that in four ACA expansion states, the percentage of uninsured hospitalizations for people with HIV declined from 13.7 percent to 5.5 percent. Additionally, the study found that in two non-expansion states, the percentage increased from 14.5 percent to 15.7 percent. Study abstract
