Iowa Senate To Vote On Medicaid Expansion



Bookmark and Share

Lawmakers in the Democratic-controlled state Senate are set to vote on legislation that would expand Medicaid in Iowa.
 
Debate on the proposal is scheduled to begin in the Senate Monday afternoon. Democrats argue that expanding Medicaid would provide better health coverage to more low-income Iowa residents.
 
Republican Gov. Terry Branstad has opposed growing Medicaid. He says the cost is unsustainable for the federal government and has questioned the long-term cost for the state.
 
Branstad has proposed revamping an existing health program for low-income residents that is funded through state and federal dollars.
 
If Iowa expanded Medicaid, the federal government would pay the full cost for new enrollees during the first three years of the expansion. Then 10 percent of the cost would gradually be shifted to the state.
