ACA repeal would cost Maryland $2 billion

HEALTH | A new Department of Legislative Services report finds that repealing or revising the Affordable Care Act in Maryland would cost the state $2 billion in fiscal year 2018. This report comes a few days before the new administration, which stated their first priority would be replacing the Affordable Care Act, will be sworn in. (WBJ, 1/18)

Here are some of the potential effects of repeal-replace plans:

If enhanced federal funding is repealed, Maryland must decide whether to maintain and how to fund Medicaid expansion. The net cost to Maryland would be $1.27 billion in fiscal 2018, rising to $1.50 billion in fiscal 2022.

Loss of an enhanced matching rate for the Maryland Children’s Health Program would increase general fund spending by an estimated $68.0 million in fiscal 2018, $72.8 million in fiscal 2019, and $19.5 million in fiscal 2020.
