SD Panel Rejects Request For Medicaid Expansion

February 18, 2014, 10:07 AM

SD Panel Rejects Request For Medicaid Expansion
PIERRE, SD -

A South Dakota legislative panel has killed a measure intended to expand Medicaid eligibility for all people below 100 percent of the federal poverty level.

The House Health and Human Services committee has voted 9-3 to defeat the bill.

It would have required the state's Department of Social Services to apply for a waiver from the federal government. Gov. Dennis Daugaard has already requested such a waiver.

The department opposed the bill, saying that the state should first wait for a response to the governor's request. The department secretary says the waiver application process would be time-consuming and cumbersome.

Supporters of the bill, including various medical associations, say it's important to provide health care for the people who don't qualify for Medicaid already and cannot afford insurance premiums.
