NC: Legislators announce Medicaid expansion deal

Source: SFGate

“North Carolina legislative leaders announced Thursday an agreement to expand Medicaid to hundreds of thousands of additional low-income adults through the Affordable Care Act. The deal, which likely won’t be voted on until later this month, marks a milestone for Republicans, most of whom opposed the idea until recently for close to a decade. North Carolina has been one of 11 states that has not adopted Medicaid expansion. Under the agreement details, which also include easing ‘certificate of need’ laws that require health regulators to sign off on expansion plans by medical providers, the state would start enrolling people in January.” (03/02/23)
