Abstract / Description

We are in a historic moment as North Carolina becomes the 40th state to implement Medicaid expansion under the Affordable Care Act. It’s been a long road to Medicaid expansion, but with the passing of the budget and today’s announcement of a Dec. 1 launch date, we are now closer to removing barriers and extending health coverage to an estimated 600,000 North Carolinians. Thanks to the bipartisan efforts of the legislature and Governor Roy Cooper, our state has taken a giant step forward to create a North Carolina where more people have the opportunity for good health.
