Texas could seek Medicaid expansion during Harvey recovery

Hurricane Harvey’s impact on Texas may spur the state to pursue Medicaid expansion as a way to receive public funding in the storm’s aftermath, some observers say.

Sarah Rosenbaum, a health policy professor at the George Washington University, told Bloomberg BNA on Tuesday that Texas’ current health insurance climate may leave it worse off in the wake of Harvey than neighbor Louisiana, which did expand Medicaid coverage under the Affordable Care Act.
