A number of states are weighing an expansion of their Medicaid programs under the Affordable Care Act after the failure of the House GOP's effort to repeal and replace the law, The Wall Street Journal reported.
The Kansas Senate on March 28 passed a bill to expand Medicaid to provide coverage to more than 150,000 additional nondisabled adults. Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe plans to use a budget amendment to expand Medicaid, while Maine residents are scheduled to vote on Medicaid expansion on a November referendum ballot, according to the report.
North Carolina, Idaho, Florida, Georgia, Missouri, Utah and Wyoming, which previously considered Medicaid expansion, are now expected to revisit their expansion efforts, the Journal noted.
