Modern Healthcare

A trio of Democratic senators introduced a bill on Wednesday that would give states that recently expanded Medicaid the same federal funding as those that previously expanded. The legislation from Democratic Sens. Mark Warner and Tim Kaine of Virginia and Doug Jones of Alabama comes as more red states are considering expansion.

“It’s crazy that for so many years, Virginia taxpayers were footing the bill for states that had already expanded Medicaid,” Warner said in a statement.
