About the Project

This project has three specific goals:  1) To use Medicaid enrollment data to characterize and compare Missouri’s Medicaid enrollee population during three distinct time periods (before COVID-19, during COVID-19, the first two years of Medicaid expansion), with a particular emphasis on the population of adults ages 19 – 64; 2) to use the Medicaid provider data to characterize and compare Missouri’s Medicaid-serving health care providers during the three distinct time periods; and, 3) using results from goals 1 and 2, evaluate the geographical overlap between new Medicaid expansion enrollees and access to primary care and health care specialists.  The project team includes Tracy Greever-Rice and staff from the MU Center for Health Policy and Sara Gable (IPP Director), Kristi Ressel (IPP Senior Research Analyst), Jake Haselswerdt (Assistant Professor, Truman School), Hang Qi (Ph.D. student in the Truman School), and Liam Redinger (IPP Research Analyst).
