Pelath To House Republicans: We Need a Plan B for HIP

Share this post

House Democratic Leader Scott Pelath, of Michigan City, spoke on the House floor this afternoon, pleading with legislative Republicans and Republican Govenor Mike Pence to have a Plan B to offer health care expansion if the governor’s plan fails. Pelath mentioned that North Dakota Gov. Jack Dalrymple, a Republican in a very conservative state, signed legislation to expand Medicaid to cover more than 20,000 uninsured citizens in his state. The bill makes available $150 million to provide that coverage. The federal government will pay 100 percent of the cost for the newly insured recipients through 2016. The state’s share will rise in stages to 10 percent.
