Event Details

Under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), Virginia can expand eligibility for Medicaid to those earning up to 138 percent of poverty (about $26,000 for a family of three) providing nearly 400,000 uninsured citizens access to health insurance coverage.  However, opponents to expansion claim that it would cost Virginia taxpayers a substantial amount while providing the poor with substandard coverage.  As one of the biggest issues to be wrestled by the General Assembly in a generation, Medicaid expansion has dominated the news and dinner table conversation.  Learn more about Medicaid expansion and the Affordable Care Act in Virginia beyond the sound bites – from the leading medical, legal, and political voices on the issue.
