Letter to GAO Regarding Jail Inmates' Qualification Under the Health Care Law's Medicaid Expansion


Excerpt: We believe the data reinforce our concerns that PPACA diverted the Medicaid program from its original intent to serve the nation’s most vulnerable populations, including children, pregnant women, individuals with disabilities, and low-income disabled seniors. The Medicaid program is already struggling to meet the health care needs of our poorest and sickest Americans. We must better understand the true costs of expanding the program to any new population and weigh such costs with the competing interests of our nation’s most vulnerable law-abiding citizens.
