SD Governor Seeks Medicaid Expansion Waiver

January 31, 2014, 12:52 PM

SD Governor Seeks Medicaid Expansion Waiver
PIERRE, SD -

South Dakota Gov. Dennis Daugaard says he is once again asking federal officials to let the state expand the Medicaid program in a way that would provide medical services only to those most in need.

The federal health care overhaul gives states the option of expanding Medicaid up to 138 percent of the poverty level.

Daugaard is seeking federal approval to expand Medicaid eligibility only up to 100 percent of the poverty level.

He says people earning between 100 percent and 138 percent of the poverty level don't need Medicaid because they can buy subsidized private insurance through the health care overhaul.

Federal officials rejected a similar proposal last year. But Daugaard says those federal officials may be willing to be more flexible now.
