Reform Update: Proponents of Medicaid expansion weigh next moves
Modern Healthcare

As many state legislative sessions have finished or are nearing completion, advocates of expanding Medicaid eligibility are looking at their next steps.

Expansion of Medicaid eligibility as called for by the 2010 healthcare overhaul will not happen in 19 states, and seven more states are leaning against expanding, according to the latest estimates by Avalere Health.

But the failure of the expansion to pass in many recently or nearly concluded state legislative sessions is unlikely to spell the end for those measures.
