The recent election has caused many to question whether significant changes are about to happen to Medicaid. Repeal of the Affordable Care Act would, of course, lead to the elimination of the Medicaid expansion, which could result in significant numbers of adults losing their coverage overnight.

But even without repeal, many Republican replacement proposals also result in significant changes to Medicaid, whether it be through funding, eligibility, or benefits. So, again, let's talk about what Medicaid does, and whether it's long term benefits are worth it. This is Healthcare Triage News.
