Datapoint: Georgia Doubles Down on Partial Medicaid Expansion Waiver

The state of Georgia has no plans to implement a full Medicaid expansion, according to a Jan. 20 report in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The state’s newly elected House Speaker, Jon Burns (R), told reporters lawmakers will instead work toward installing Gov. Brian Kemp (R)’s partial expansion plan, a waiver program that would allow low-income adults to enroll in Medicaid if they meet a work requirement. The Trump administration approved the program, Georgia Pathways to Coverage, in October 2020, and the state hopes to begin implementation by this summer. Georgia currently serves 2,799,066 Medicaid beneficiaries, with 76.7% enrolled in managed care plans. The state estimates about 50,000 additional lives would enroll under Pathways to Coverage.
