Stance on Medicaid could cost N.C. $10 Billion

So says a Charlotte Observer/McClatchy analysis that was done in conjunction with Kaiser Family Foundation, the best source of non partisan health policy information around (update: it is actually done with Kaiser Health News, and independent, editorial arm of KFF). They quote me in the story, and here is the plan I put out in January, 2014 to which they refer. Here is a post from last year about the fiscal impacts of States sitting out the Medicaid expansion.

After the 2014 election, the political incentives will begin to align in a way that makes possible a reform plan that will likely include some sort of modified Medicaid expansion in North Carolina.
