Lawmakers gear up to dive into future Medicaid expansion funding, impacts
from The Spokesman-Review
A legislative interim committee has scheduled four meetings between now and November, with the first on June 17, to "evaluate the effectiveness of Medicaid eligibility expansion and its impact on the financial obligation of the counties and the state in providing indigent assistance." Medicaid expansion already is funded for its first year, the fiscal year that starts July 1, without tapping the state general fund; instead, the funding will come from the Millennium Fund that was created with tobacco settlement proceeds, and from savings in the Corrections and Health & Welfare budgets.
