Montana Becomes the 30th State to Expand Medicaid
HHS Secretary Sylvia Burwell issued the following statement today after Montana became the 30th state, plus the District of Columbia, to expand Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act.
“With today’s agreement, Montana becomes the 30th state, plus the District of Columbia, to expand Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act. This agreement will bring much needed access to health care coverage to more than 70,000 low-income Montanans,” said Secretary Burwell. “The administration looks forward to working with other states to expand Medicaid by designing programs that meet state’s needs while providing needed services to residents and significant economic benefits to states.”
