PA Senate to Move on Medicaid Expansion

Pennsylvania state Senate leaders plan to bring a vote to expand the state’s Medicaid program to the Senate floor this week.

The bill, according to Senate leaders, will include conditions that will make it more palatable to more conservative Republicans and the governor.  Democrats are already thought to support Medicaid expansion.

While the bill is considered likely to enjoy solid support in the Senate, it is not clear whether the state House is as interested in Medicaid expansion as envisioned under the federal Affordable Care Act.

The Safety-Net Association of Pennsylvania (SNAP) supports Medicaid expansion in the state.
