Though the oncoming effects of the Affordable Care Act have put some hiring in question throughout the health care industry, the market stands to improve hiring figures in multiple states. Not only will a healthcare expansion add 80 jobs to an Iowa town, but Medicaid expansions in Alabama could promote the creation of up to 30,000 positions throughout the state.

In Coralville, Iowa, healthcare organization firm MediRevv will soon add a new building to its ownings, according to the Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier. Already employing 150 people, the company plans to add 80 more positions over the next two years. MediRevv specializes in revenue cycle management, helping to ensure healthcare organizations manage insurance claims and billing to keep revenue flowing in.

Those additions are nothing compared to the potential growth in Alabama, according to the Selma Times Journal. Through 2020, estimates from a University of Alabama report indicate more than 30,000 new jobs could be created by increasing the number of those eligible for Medicaid. More than 10,000 jobs in healthcare and social assistance, 6,000 jobs in retail trade and 5,000 in professional and technical services would be formed by the $2.1 billion added to the state's GDP annually.
