Medicaid Expansion at a Crossroads

On Monday there will be a Rally for Medicaid expansion in Harrisburg.  There will be a  meeting with Legislators at 11:30 followed by the Rally in the small rotunda in the Capitol Building near the Cafeteria. Along with Iowa, Arkansas, and Michigan, Pennsylvania is now proposing it’s own version of expansion.  Utah is still undecided as can be seen in the map below.

Gov. Corbett has proposed an expansion of Medicaid which differs from other states because it adds additional requirements such as a job search requirement and adding premiums and cutting services.  For a year, his administration has been in negotiations with the Federal Department of Health and Human Services to accept his plan but they appear to be foundering with a rejection of the plan likely.  Iowa’s and Arkansas’ plans have been approved by the Federal Government.
