Wyoming Gov. Opts Out of Medicaid Expansion Under ACA
On Friday, Wyoming Gov. Matt Mead (R) said his state will not expand Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act. He said the problematic rollout of the federal health insurance exchange website has cast doubt on whether the federal government can effectively follow through on its pledge to pay its portion of the expansion costs under the ACA. Mead said he would consider expanding Medicaid in the future if it appears to be in the state's financial interest.
