More States To Expand Medicaid Now That Obamacare Remains Law
Kansas and North Carolina – are already working toward becoming the 32nd
and 33rd states to expand Medicaid
Before Trump was elected, Georgia, Idaho, Nebraska and South Dakota were
considering Medicaid expansion
More states will pursue expansion of Medicaid health benefits for poor
Americans under the Affordable Care Act after Republicans failed to repeal
and replace the law.
The American Health Care Act, also known as Trumpcare, would’ve rolled back
the ACA’s Medicaid expansion and put restrictions on states that tried to
expand such coverage. But Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives Paul
Ryan Friday pulled the ACHA legislation Friday, making, “Obamacare the law
of the land” as he said.
