Top administrators from the University of Nebraska Medical Center are expected to brief the university's Board of Regents about the impact that the federal health care law would have on their facilities.

University of Nebraska College of Medicine dean Bradley Britigan and other administrators will focus on a proposed Medicaid expansion during the regents' meeting on Friday.

A university report released in August concluded that the law would attract at least $2.9 billion in revenue from the federal government by 2020, and reduce so-called charity care at Nebraska hospitals by $650 million over a five-year period.

States that choose to expand their Medicaid programs would see 100 percent of their new costs covered by the federal government between 2014 and 2016. The amount would decrease to 90 percent by 2020.
