Utah House Committee Rejects Gov. Herbert’s Medicaid Expansion Proposal, Approves Alternate GOP Plan
On Wednesday, a Utah House committee rejected Gov. Gary Herbert's (R) alternative Medicaid expansion plan. However, the state House committee advanced an alternative proposal (HB 446) by House GOP lawmakers that would insure some of the most low-income state residents under the traditional Medicaid program and cover all other individuals earning less than 100% of the federal poverty level through Utah's Primary Care Network.
