Utah GOP Rolls Back Voter-Approved Medicaid Expansion

HeadlineFeb 05, 2019

On Monday, Republican state senators in Utah passed a bill limiting Medicaid expansion—just a few months after voters approved the expansion in November. The Medicaid expansion should benefit people with incomes up to 138 percent of the poverty level, but the Republican bill would restrict eligibility to those making less than 100 percent of the poverty level. Utah will also seek federal permission to impose work requirements on Medicaid recipients. In Idaho, where over 60 percent of voters approved a Medicaid expansion, lawmakers are also attempting to stymie the measure, by considering work requirements and other restrictions.
