Lawmakers Still Not In Agreement With Medicaid

A Virginia legislative commission still appears a long way from deciding whether to recommend Medicaid expansion. The Medicaid Innovation and Reform Commission held its last meeting of 2013 Tuesday. Lawmakers say the Republican-controlled House won’t be ready to act in the 2014 session. The commission was developed as a compromise between Democrats who support expansion and Republicans who oppose it. The panel is tasked with ensuring that certain cost-saving reforms are achieved before expansion is considered.
