Datapoint: North Carolina Begins Medicaid Expansion Rollout

North Carolina began its long-awaited Medicaid expansion Dec. 1. About 600,000 people are newly eligible for coverage, according to the state’s Medicaid department. Just 10 states have yet to expand Medicaid, and CMS Administrator Chiquita Brooks-LaSure urged them to take action in a statement. “It’s crucial that the ten remaining states expand their Medicaid programs so that the millions of people in the coverage gap today can receive the essential health care they need,” she said. The state currently serves 2,318,187 Medicaid beneficiaries, with 78% enrolled in managed care plans.
