Default Utah guv: Medicaid will expand Health reform

Looks like the dominoes are beginning to fall.SLOWLY.

< "Doing nothing ... Iíve taken off the table. Doing nothing is not an option," he said at his monthly news conference, broadcast live on KUED Channel 7.>


<Herbert referred to the 60,000 impoverished, uninsured Utahns who fall in a gap that appears in states that havenít opted to expand their health safety nets as the Affordable Care Act (ACA) envisions. Those individuals are too poor to qualify for subsidies, or tax credits, to put toward the purchase of private insurance on the federal health exchange.>

<"Every month that Utah waits to start a program, we lose over "Every month that Utah waits to start a program, we lose over 4 million dollars in federal funding, thousands of families struggle accessing and paying for care, and continue to face the physical, mental and financial harm that occurs when families are uninsured," he said.



The other Govs will see that every months delay they will be losing over $4 million in federal funding,while leaving thousands of families without healthcare.
