State Children's Health Insurance Program Breaking News: States Forgo Billions in Federal Cash by Opting Out of Medicaid Expansion

by Wochit 1:06 mins

Nearly half the nation's states are opting out of expanding Medicaid to all of their low-income residents, leaving billions of federal dollars on the table and millions of poor Americans uninsured. At least 21 states are opting out of Medicaid expansion for next year. In another six states, legislators are still weighing their options. About 550,000 people in Oregon do not have health insurance, and Aaron Karjala, the chief information officer at "Cover Oregon,", is confident the state's new online insurance exchange will be able to accommodate them when enrollment under President Barack Obama's healthcare reform begins on October 1. New Jersey Governor Chris Christie vetoed a bill that would have expanded Medicaid eligibility under the healthcare law known as Obamacare, his office said on Friday, in an apparent reversal of position for the presumed 2016 Republican presidential hopeful.
