Halderman, U. As of April , 19 states have not adopted the Medicaid expansion. David Blumenthal, M. In economics, there is no free lunch. Someday the rooster will come home to roost. We will pay for the cost one way or another, whether through inflation, cuts in needed services, eventual increases in federal taxes, or distortions in the economy. In his comprehensive report Transcending ObamaCare , Dr. Avik Roy correctly observes Medicaid has bad health care outcomes, the worst of any public or private health insurance coverage in America.
In fact, and surprisingly, studies have showed those on Medicaid fare no better than those with no insurance coverage at all. Considering the notorious bad health outcomes for Medicaid patients, it makes little sense expanding the program without at least reforming it. Or better yet, it should be replaced.
Governor Kemp is doing the right thing in pursuing federal waivers to redesign the health insurance system and Medicaid. The waivers would give Georgia tremendous flexibility to do it right and even allow Georgia to capture dedicated federal revenue sources to underwrite the cost.
What Georgia needs is a market-based consumer-directed health insurance system with risk equalization coupled with real reform of medical assistance programs. Medicaid needs to be fundamentally changed and consolidated with other programs so poor people can access the same health insurance as everyone else, and so that no one gets trapped in the welfare system. If done correctly, the redesign will solve the problem of pre-existing conditions, make insurance more affordable, achieve universal coverage, and not undermine the quality of care to which Americans have grown accustomed.

Guidelines and Recommendations
Baicker K et al. To address this growing problem, the Institute of Medicine IOM , with support from The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, has been conducting a three-year study of the uninsured to assess and consolidate evidence about the health, economic and social consequences of uninsurance for those without insurance, their families, health care systems and institutions, and communities as a whole.
This paper seeks to raise awareness and improve understanding by both the general public and policy makers of the magnitude and nature of the consequences of lacking health insurance. The study recommends principles to guide reform of the health care system and expand coverage to the uninsured, based both on the previous five reports and on new analyses of past and present efforts to reduce uninsurance.
