Idaho Medicaid Advocates Respond To Federal Restrictions Request
Last week, the federal government rejected a request from the state of Idaho to allow folks who are eligible for Medicaid expansion to instead stay on the state's health insurance exchange. The effort to get the waiver approved was led by Republican lawmakers. We talk with advocates for Medicaid expansion, including a Democratic lawmaker, who say the feds were right to reject the waiver.
Be sure to tune in to Idaho Matters Sept. 5 at noon for an interview with Senate Pro-Tem Brent Hill (R-Rexburg). Hill signed a letter along with Gov. Brad Little and House Speaker Scott Bedke (R-Oakley) last week saying they plan to try again to get the waiver through the federal process.
