Utah lawmakers have answered the big questions about how they would seek to overturn a popular vote in favor of adopting the Affordable Care Act’s Medicaid expansion. Now the question is whether the Trump administration will let it happen.
Utah Gov. Gary Herbert signed off on a bill yesterday to adopt only a partial Medicaid expansion — something the federal Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services has never before approved.
The article goes on to state the following:
Utah wants to only expand Medicaid to people whose incomes are at or below the poverty line, as opposed to the full expansion, which goes up to 138% of the poverty line. But Utah wants full federal funding for its partial expansion. State officials say they’ve gotten informal encouragement from CMS — including from administrator Seema Verma.
