Issues With Expanding Medicaid

The Medicaid Opportunities and Challenges Task Force is meeting again, this time in Sioux Falls. The group was appointed by Governor Dennis Daugaard to look at the issues surrounding the proposed expansion of Medicaid. Part of the Affordable Care Act, the expansion would add about fifty thousand people to Medicaid coverage, with the federal government paying all the costs, at least for the first few years. Senator Tim Rave of Baltic says they have found there are a lot of details involved in the expansion……

Rave says they are not expected to give the Governor any recommendations……

Rave says the ability of the federal government to live up to its promises is a key concern……

The committee meets this afternoon (Tuesday) and tomorrow at the Ramkota Hotel in Sioux Falls.
