ME clinicians urging lawmakers to expand Medicaid

Bangor Daily News, January 24, 2014
Doctors with the Maine Medical Association on Thursday urged lawmakers in Augusta to work together to make Medicaid expansion the law of the land this year. Their voices joined a growing chorus of statewide groups urging the Legislature to accept federal dollars related to expanding Medicaid, known as MaineCare in the state, to roughly 70,000 low-income Mainers. It's not just the usual liberal lobbying groups, either: Earlier this month, the Maine Hospital Association made its pro-expansion stance clear, and the Maine State Chamber of Commerce is also pushing a deal to tie Medicaid expansion to cost-saving measures within the program.
