North Carolina will expand Medicaid on Dec. 1, according to a Sept. 25 press release from the state. “Finally expanding Medicaid in North Carolina is a monumental achievement that will extend health insurance to people who need it,” Gov. Roy Cooper (D) said in the statement. “This action is long overdue, and we aren’t wasting a moment in beginning enrollment in North Carolina.” The move will bring health coverage to about 600,000 people. North Carolina currently serves 2.34 million Medicaid beneficiaries, with 78.8% enrolled in managed care plans.
