Could changes be coming to Medicaid coverage in Georgia?

Georgia, like many other places in the country right now, is receiving a somewhat more intense review by the news media than what is typical. The reason? Election season. And, like hundreds of other states, cities and local governments across the country, things may be changing in Georgia depending on how the citizens of the state vote in November. Could changes be coming to Medicaid as a result?

It is possible. In the governor's race, one recent media report noted that the two candidates who are likely to receive the most votes in the November election have different views when it comes to Medicaid in Georgia. One candidate is in favor of expanding the scope of coverage for Medicaid, while the other is opposed to such a move. As it stands right now, Georgia is one of only eight states in America that has not moved to expand Medicaid coverage, as was detailed in the recent report.

This issue, which is being hotly debate in the Georgia political landscape, is just one example of how the debate over the best approach to medical care is being discussed throughout the country. On the federal level, major changes to health insurance laws have been implemented, and then repealed or significantly scaled back. Could Medicaid be the next program to face significant changes?

The possibility exists, but it is likely dependent on who the citizens of Georgia elect to run the local, state and federal governments. Those who are receiving Medicaid coverage, or who are attempting to get enrolled in such coverage, would likely benefit from investigating the legal implications of any potential changes to the program.
