South Dakota Medicaid Expansion decision delayed

Added February 29th, 2016 by

Medicaid expansion will be addressed in special session or 2017 legislative session

Governor Daugaard announced that with only 10 days left in the 2016 legislative session he has “concluded that to urge the legislature approval of the Medical expansion decision this session would not give the legislature adequate time to give fair and dispassionate consideration to the proposal.”  The Governor went on to say, “This does not mean that we are done. We will continue to work on a plan to implement the federal policy and to determine if it will free up sufficient funds to enable South Dakota to afford Medicaid Expansion.”
