Read the Full Report: MEDICAID EXPANSION: States' Implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (GAO-12-821).

Background

This e-supplement presents the questions and aggregate results from a Web survey of state budget directors on the fiscal implications of Medicaid expansion implementation on state budget planning.

GAO emailed the survey website address and unique passwords to state budget directors in the 50 states, the District of Columbia, American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands in February 2012. The survey closed in April of 2012 with completed questionnaires from 42 of the 55 entities, for a response rate of 76 percent. GAO administered this survey in accordance with generally accepted government auditing standards.

A more detailed discussion of the objectives, scope and methodology and issues related to the states' implementation of the Medicaid expansion is included in GAO's report "MEDICAID EXPANSION: States' Implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act," GAO-12-821 (Washington, D.C.: August, 2012).
