Ohio Governor John Kasich Becomes Fifth Republican Governor to Expand State Medicaid

by Colonel on February 5, 2013

“Kasich, a former House Budget chairman, made the biggest splash so far when on Monday, he became the fifth GOP governor to announce he would expand his state’s Medicaid program. …

Also getting notice are Govs. Susana Martinez of New Mexico and Brian Sandoval of Nevada — the only two Republican governors who are expanding Medicaid as well as establishing the new online insurance marketplaces called exchanges.

Only three Republican governors are pursuing state-run exchanges: Nevada, New Mexico and Idaho. And so far, five Republican governors are pursuing a Medicaid expansion: Nevada, New Mexico, Arizona, Ohio and North Dakota. Almost half of the nation’s governors remain undecided on the Medicaid expansion — including … Michigan and Florida.

Utah may do a partial implementation — having an exchange that serves small businesses, but letting the feds create one for individuals.
