Summary
In June 2018, Gov. Ralph Northam signed a budget bill that gives 400,000 low-income Virginians access to government health insurance through Medicaid. This action marked an upbeat, bipartisan close to a bitter, four-year battle in the General Assembly. An Affordable Care Act option, Medicaid expansion makes additional low-income persons in participating states eligible for care that is funded chiefly with federal dollars. Virginia’s decision to join 32 other participating states hinged on a legislative compromise with Republicans that imposes work requirements on Medicaid recipients. While a few other states have taken similar positions, debate about work requirements continues in government, policy circles, and the courts. This Medical Center Hour looks at Medicaid expansion in Virginia—to be implemented in January 2019—from policy, political, and health care perspectives, with a focus on what it means locally, in Charlottesville and Central Virginia.
