Make the case for Medicaid

South Boston News
Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe visited Halifax Regional Hospital on Tuesday to press the case for expansion of Virginia’s Medicaid program. McAuliffe and GOP legislators are deadlocked on the proposed expansion, which has tied up budget negotiations in the General Assembly and could force a state government shutdown if the sides are unable to come to an agreement. In South Boston, McAuliffe said expansion of the program would allow up to 400,000 Virginians to gain health coverage. Most potential recipients work, but they do not receive health insurance through their employers or make enough to qualify for insurance subsidies through the Affordable Care Act, widely known as Obamacare. McAuliffe called Medicaid expansion a moral imperative but also said the program would provide an economic boost for rural hospitals and communities with a large nunber of uninsured patients. Halifax Regional Hospital president Chris Lumsden offered his support to the governor, noting “what happens in Richmond and Washington has a great impact on our organization and the patients we serve.” McAuliffe (third from left) is shown at a HRH forum with hospital directors Carol Thomas of Clarksville, Dr. James Priest of South Boston and Board president David White of South Boston.
