1. More than just about any other state, we will benefit from Medicaid expansion because our benefit levels are so low.”

    -

    John McInerney, health policy director at the Commonwealth Institute for Fiscal Analysis.

    The Supreme Court will decide within the next two weeks on the Affordable Care Act, which includes a Medicaid provision. A decision to turn over just the individual mandate would leave the Medicaid expansion in place.
