What a Limited Medicaid Expansion in Virginia Could Look Like
Republican Senator Siobhan Dunnavant is spearheading a number of healthcare reforms, including a limited expansion of the Medicaid program.
Virginia’s Governor is calling for a full expansion of Medicaid, the state run health insurance program for the poor. But many Republicans in the statehouse don’t like the idea of able bodied adults, no matter how poor, getting government-funded healthcare.
So they’re eyeing something else: a more narrow expansion of the program. Mallory Noe-Payne has more.
