The business case for Medicaid expansion in NC

Andrew Brod, senior research fellow in UNC Greensboro’s Center for Business and Economic Research, has a great column in the Charlotte Business Journal this week making the strong business case for why NC should accept the billions of federal dollars now available to expand Medicaid.  His reasons are wide ranging from more jobs to avoidance of business tax penalties and even lower rates of personal bankruptcies. Reasons like these are why many conservative states are now moving to close the Medicaid coverage gap – let’s hope NC can be as smart. Read Brod courtesy of the Charlotte Business Journal:
