SD Gov. Cautious About Expanding Medicaid Himself

SD Gov. Cautious About Expanding Medicaid Himself
Gov. Dennis Daugaard

PIERRE, SD -

South Dakota Gov. Dennis Daugaard says he would be reluctant to expand the state's Medicaid program without first getting the Legislature's agreement.

Daugaard last month asked federal officials to let South Dakota expand its Medicaid program in a way that would provide medical services to fewer people than envisioned in the federal health overhaul law. But with only two weeks remaining in this year's legislative session, he has received no response from those federal officials.

Republican House and Senate leaders say they believe if federal approval is received after the legislative session ends, the governor could implement the partial expansion of Medicaid without calling a special session of the Legislature.

Daugaard says he technically could make the decision himself, but he believes lawmakers should have a say.
