All of a sudden, Medicaid is trendy again.
The governor of Kansas vetoed a bill on Thursday that would have expanded Medicaid in his state. But the legislature is reserving the option of trying to override the veto and Virginia and North Carolina are moving toward expansion.
Several other states are considering it.
It’s a fast turnaround made by states that had resolutely resisted taking part on a major plank of the 2010 Affordable Care Act — the expansion of Medicaid to cover more people.
Now that the GOP-sponsored American Health Care Act has failed to win support in Congress, governors and state legislatures are taking a hard look at whether that offer of federally funded Medicaid expansion is worth taking up.
