It found that nearly half of th...

North Carolina Medicaid expansion makes nearly 600K now eligible for coverage

Hundreds of thousands of people in North Carolina are eligible for Medicaid benefits beginning Friday, almost a decade after ObamaCare let states expand eligibility. 

Advocates say North Carolina's expansion will give much-needed aid to adults who previously earned too much to be eligible for Medicaid but not enough to benefit from federal subsidies to help them afford private health insurance.  

Medicaid coverage includes doctor visits, check-ups, eme...

North Carolina Medicaid expansion set to launch Dec. 1

Medicaid expansion will launch in North Carolina on Dec. 1, Gov. Roy Cooper (D) announced Monday, marking the culmination of a long-fought campaign from Cooper and health groups.

North Carolina Republicans refused for more than 10 years to accept federal funding to help expand coverage to low-income people. There are now only 10 holdout states remaining.
