The NC Health Care for Working Families Act would help low-income people get coverage through the state’s Medicaid program, but it wouldn’t technically be “expanding” Medicaid. It’s estimated that about 543,000 people would end up gaining coverage through the proposal. Medicaid news comes out of North Dakota, Illinois and Ohio, as well.
