Alabama Governor Says "No" Again to Medicaid Expansion

by Molly S. on Tuesday, September 3, 2013

Governor Robert Bentley recently spoke out during a public forum against expansion of Medicaid in the state of Alabama. Advocates were hopeful that Governor Bentley would soften his stance on expansion after the Alabama Legislature passed the Medicaid program overhaul earlier this year.

For the state of Alabama, expansion would mean coverage for an additional 300,000 Alabamians who currently lack care and a $1 billion tax revenue boost. Expanded Medicaid coverage is a critical source of care for those with or at risk for heart disease and stroke.
