The Law and Economics of Federalism

Edited by Jonathan Klick

This unique volume takes a primarily empirical perspective on the law and economics of federalism. Using cross jurisdiction variation, the specially commissioned chapters examine the effects of various state experiments in areas such as crime, welfare, consumer protection, and a host of other areas. Although legal scholars have talked about states as laboratories for decades, rarely has the law and economics literature treated the topic of federalism empirically in such a systematic and useful way.

Chapter 6: Medicaid

Marianne P. Bitler and Madeline Zavodny

Abstract

In this chapter we review the existing literature about the effects of the Medicaid program. We first describe the program’s structure and how it haschanged over time. We then discuss findings on coverage, crowd-out, take-up and health. Finally, we look at effects of the program on non-health outcomes such as welfare use and labor supply, marriage and fertility, and savings.
