Another look at Expansion of Medicaid

A summer task force looking at the possible expansion of Medicaid wrapped up a two day meeting last week in Sioux Falls.

Committee member, Senator Billie Sutton of Burke, says it was a solid session…………… 

Sutton says they spent some time looking at what other states are doing with the proposed expansion…………. 

Sutton says they also have to deal with a great amount of information, and not come to any recommendation…………… 

The task force will meet at least once more before the 2014 legislative session.
