Medicaid expansion to be on Maine ballot next November

Sun Journal - Mainers will vote in November on whether the state should expand its Medicaid program, following the validation Tuesday of a petition to do so. The citizen-initiated bill, An Act to Enhance Access to Affordable Health Care, seeks for Maine to provide Medicaid services through MaineCare to qualifying people younger than 65 years old, whose income is below 133 percent plus 5 percent of the non-farm income official poverty line.
