Medicaid Expansion – A Nationwide Issue

Below are three recent articles that I have found interesting regarding the expansion of Medicaid. Please take a moment to read them if you have the time.

What is the key message in these articles?

Many legislators want to improve care under the Affordable Care Act, but many are also hesitant to expand under a broken system with problems..

Here’s an example of an on-going problem:

Information from a recent poll suggests that over 2.9 million Americans who have signed up for Medicaid coverage, have not had their applications even processed. States are supposed to process Medicaid applications within 45 days, but here in Virginia, 45% of the applications that have been submitted from healthcare.gov, are past the 45-day limit.
