Medicaid Expansion


Last February, Indiana Governor Mike Pence was in Washington meeting with Kathleen Sebelius, then-Secretary of the Health and Human Services Department, to discuss his desire to administer any expansion of Medicaid to the state, as provided under the Affordable Care Act. While the majority of other states have decided to expand, Indiana has not, having received a federal waiver to maintain its more limited Healthy Indiana Plan. Pence has been under local pressure to expand Medicaid. On January 22nd, the Bloomington City Council passes resolution 14 DASH 1 Supporting the Full Expansion of Medicaid in Indiana Through the Affordable Care Act. Correspondent David Murphy spoke to Alex Slabosky, chairperson of Cover Indiana, one of the groups leading this campaign, for today’s WFHB feature exclusive.
