A Band-Aid Approach

Record #:
Governor Pat McCrory released his 344 page budget mid-March which denied expansion of Medicaid coverage to state residents. The expansion funded by the federal Affordable Care Act would have helped 500,000 citizens backed by $521 million in federal funding. To counter this the governor approved $755 million in state funds for Medicaid but health care experts believe this is just a stop-gap measure without addressing core problems in the Medicaid system.
