This just in---the Michigan Senate voted on August 27th to increase Medicaid coverage for almost 470,000 individuals with low incomes, according to a story in Governing. Adding Michigan, there are 25 states that will be expanding Medicaid coverage as a result of the Affordable Care Act, with 21 rejecting expansion and 5 still considering it, according to the article, which cites to the Kaiser Family Foundation (KFF).
If you haven't checked out the KFF site recently, go take a look. The site has the results of KFF's August 2013 tracking poll on the Affordable Care Act as well as loads of information on a variety of topics, including Medicaid expansion, the Affordable Care Act, Medicare, and even world health news. It's one of my go-to sites for staying current on developments.
