The Montana Healthcare Foundation’s second annual report on Montana’s Medicaid program provides an in-depth analysis of the program, its cost, and its impacts on health in the state. In the first research of its kind, the analysis shows that Montana’s Medicaid expansion led to lower use of high-cost emergency services and increased access to lower-cost primary care and outpatient specialty services. The report also shows that Montana spends a lower proportion of the state general fund to finance its Medicaid program than peer states. The report was commissioned by the Montana Healthcare Foundation and produced by Manatt Health.
