Data analysis from the Colorado Hospital Association finds states that expanded their Medicaid programs under the Affordable Care Act have fewer self-pay patients and lower hospital charity care rates.

The association analyzed data from 465 hospitals across 30 states, 15 of which expanded Medicaid and 15 that did not. Much of the data came from 12 states, which include 90 percent of the hospitals surveyed with the remaining 18 states each having less than 10 hospitals per state.
