NC General Assembly to continue Medicaid expansion pitch

NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!

Republicans in the North Carolina General Assembly apparently aren’t through talking this legislative session about a path toward expanding Medicaid to hundreds of thousands of additional low-income adults.

A House committee scheduled debate Thursday on a new measure that would direct the state health department to develop a “Medicaid Modernization Plan” that would include covering individuals targeted by the 2010 Affordable Care Act. The plan would be turned in by mid-December and couldn’t be implemented without formal legislative votes approving it.

The GOP-controlled Senate already passed a health care-access measure in early June that contained expansion and other reforms. House Speaker Tim Moore has said there’s no appetite in his chamber to pass that omnibus measure.

IMPROPER MEDICAID PAYMENTS EXPAND AFTER OBAMACARE AND PANDEMIC, STUDIES FIND

North Carolina Republicans will continue to debate plans to expand Medicaid on Thursday.

IT’S TIME FOR MEDICARE FOR EVERYONE

Senate leader Phil Berger has wanted expansion to be part of ongoing state budget negotiations. Berger said late Wednesday it’s time for action on the idea — not another study like House Republicans are pitching.
