GOP Governors Mull Alternate Medicaid Expansion Plans
Although many GOP governors continue to publicly oppose the Affordable Care Act's Medicaid expansion, some are pursing alternatives that would partially expand the program's coverage. Governors in states like Florida, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Texas have expressed interest in options that would allow them to provide coverage to individuals eligible for Medicaid under the expansion through state health insurance exchanges established under the ACA.
