MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Alabama Republicans might be cracking the door to Medicaid expansion.
Several state leaders said they are reviewing details of the nearly $2 trillion coronavirus relief package that includes new financial incentives for the 12 states that have opted against expanding Medicaid to provide health coverage for more low-income Americans.
Expanding eligibility would bring health care coverage to more than 300,000 Alabamians.
A spokeswoman for Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey said the governor is reviewing the state’s share of the cost and that the governor is open to the discussion but needs additional information.
