The Future of Medicaid Expansion

The debate over whether or not to proceed with Obamacare is shifting toward new ideas for its operations. Arkansas is developing one of the most innovative – a premium assistance program that allows new Medicaid funding to be directed toward purchasing private insurance on state health insurance exchanges. Meanwhile, Republican Governors in several states from Wisconsin to Indiana to Pennsylvania are widening coverage to Medicaid without adopting Obamacare’s expansion. What are lessons for Minnesota?
