Center for Rural Affairs analyzes benefits of Medicaid in rural areas
LYONS, NE - Medicaid protects long-term care for millions of seniors, helps people with disabilities live independently and provides health coverage that ensures children can see a doctor when they get sick. The Center for Rural Affairs released a new health care report today, entitled – Medicaid and Rural America – that examines these and other vital roles Medicaid plays in rural areas.
“A variety of unique characteristics of rural communities make Medicaid crucial for rural people and rural places,” said Jon Bailey, Rural Research Director at the Center for Rural Affairs and author of the report.
In the report, Bailey also provides evidence that Medicaid is also vital to the rural health care infrastructure and to rural communities. Health care providers, especially those who serve large percentages of Medicaid patients, rely on Medicaid payments to cover the costs of treating those patients. Federal and state Medicaid dollars contribute to rural economic development by generating health care jobs and other related businesses and services.
The data from 35 states and the District of Columbia shows that more rural than urban residents are eligible for Medicaid in 31 states. (New Jersey and the District of Columbia, have no rural counties). In 13 states the rural-urban variation was five percentage points higher for the rural population.
