Utah Voters Pass Medicaid Expansion

Utah voters approved for a full Medicaid Expansion on Tuesday November 6, 2018. Voter approved full expansion replaces the plan that was passed by Utah lawmakers earlier this year to limit Medicaid expansion with a work requirement. The limited Medicaid expansion required a waiver and federal governmental approval because of the work requirement and that it limited expansion specified in the Affordable Care Act. It is anticipated that full Medicaid will cover adults with annual incomes up to 138 percent of the poverty level and it is estimated that the expansion will cover up to 150,000 more people. Utah now joins more than 30 others states that have expanded Medicaid under the 2010 health care law.
