NC attempts to block Medicaid expansion
Who is eligible for Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act?
As of Jan. 1, 2014, Americans under 65 who earn less than $14,000 for an individual and $29,000 for a family of four will be eligible to enroll in Medicaid. States will receive 100-percent federal funding for the first three years to support this expanded coverage, phasing to 90-percent federal funding in subsequent years.
North Carolina Senate Bill 4, which would block the federal Medicaid expansion for the state, is still being discussed by the General Assembly.
The bill passed the Senate on Feb. 5 and the House of Representatives passed the bill Feb. 14 with a 75-42 vote, but the Senate was scheduled to discuss it again on Feb. 26.
