Medicaid expansion proposal in the works for Idahoans

BOISE, Idaho - Medicaid expansion is now up the states, because of the recent Supreme Court ruling.

Today a work group met to weigh the options and eventually make a recommendation to Governor Butch Otter.

Idaho Health and Welfare spokesman Tom Shanahan says it's all a work in progress.

"I don't think there is a clear and easy answer to this," says Shanahan. "We will present, and some of our partners will present, some of the best data we have available at this time and hopefully we can come up with a decision."

The group's recommendation is due to Governor Otter by November 1st.
