ADN Editorial About Expanded Medicaid

FAIRBANKS- Several groups are speaking out against Governor Sean Parnell’s decision to reject Medicaid expansion in the state. Most recently the Anchorage Daily News wrote an editorial saying, the governor “chooses disrespect for thousands of Alaskans.” Alaska Democrats have also voiced their disappointment that thousands more people will remain uninsured without the expansion. According to the Lewin Group report, released by the governor, about 20,000 individuals will remain uninsured that would otherwise be covered with expanded Medicaid.
