Legislative Activity On Medicaid

A report from the Commonwealth Fund discusses how the 2018 election of Democratic governors and passage of ballot initiatives to expand Medicaid in conservative states laid the groundwork for serious debates about Medicaid expansion in some states. Also considered are still-unresolved questions surrounding pending federal and state efforts to expand, or restrict, a program created to provide health coverage to low incomes beneficiaries.
