Health Care News (HCN) Managing Editor Michael Hamilton joined Dave Elswick on radio row at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in National Harbor, Maryland
Broadcasting on The Answer 96.5 KHTE-FM, the two discussed what Elswick described as a “hot issue” for his listeners in Little Rock: Arkansas’s troubled Medicaid expansion.
Jump to minute 49:58, immediately after Elswick’s interview of Tax Pledge legend Grover Norquist.
Elswick could not have called on Heartland’s expertise at a better time. The forthcoming (April) issue of HCN features articles on the flawed theory and praxis of Medicaid expansion in half a dozen states, including Arkansas–via Nebraska.
HCN wrote on Nebraska’s fondness for pointing to Arkansas’s costly and unpredictable Medicaid expansion as a cautionary tale warning Cornhuskers against implementing the same expansion model.
The same print issue features an interview by Hamilton of Charlie Katebi, policy analyst at the Wyoming Liberty Group and Heartland policy advisor, in which Katebi explains why “nontraditional” models of expanding Medicaid, like Arkansas’s, don’t actually offer governors any flexibility to speak of when it comes to expanding their Medicaid programs.
Listen to the interview and head over to The Heartlander‘s Health Care News section to read health care policy free and clear.
