Medicaid News

Medicaid is one of the most hotly debated topics in the US. It is discussed everywhere from family dinner tables to universities to institutions of government. So, to help you remain informed about all the latest Medicaid news, Wiser has created a free daily email digest on the topic. Medicaid is a program through which millions of Americans receive health care. It is a social program funded by the government - state and federal. It is available to those on low incomes and is allocated based on need. States often deal with budgetary issues in terms of funding Medicaid, while there are ongoing debates regarding whether to expand the program or not. Finding alternatives through the Affordable Care Act — which was made law in 2010 — is also part of the debate. If you have an interest in how Medicaid is administered, or in the discussions surrounding its implementation, you should sign up for the Medicaid news email from Wiser. Each day you will receive a comprehensive digest featuring the latest news and information from the best sources on the internet.
