National Council Releases FAQs on Medicaid Expansion

by Rebecca Farley on July 27, 2010

As part of healthcare reform, states will be required to expand Medicaid to cover all individuals under 133% of poverty by 2014 or earlier. The National Council has issued a Frequently Asked Questions document providing information about who is eligible to participate in the Medicaid expansion, what services will be provided, how the cost of the expansion will be covered, and how current funding for mental health and addictions services will be affected.

For additional information about the Medicaid expansion, check out the slides and recording from our June 8th webinar, “Healthcare Reform Implementation: Medicaid Expansion and the Impact on Behavioral Health,” featuring Ann Kohler, Executive Director of the National Association of State Medicaid Directors.
