Matt Bevin has been reluctant to expand Medicaid, even after a massive health care overhaul was signed into law in the spring.
The governor, who is seeking re-election, has also resisted calls to do so.
But a growing number of state lawmakers are expressing support for expanding the program.
Here are some key points: The states with the most residents with Medicaid coverage The states with a total population of more than 25,000 people include: Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, Wisconsin, Wyoming What are Medicaid enrollees?
Medicaid is the federal government’s program for people who are poor, disabled or have low incomes, and it covers nearly 8 million people.
A Medicaid enrollee is someone who meets the eligibility requirements to be eligible for Medicaid.
Medicaid covers about 15 million Americans and has a population of about 65 million.
States have varying eligibility requirements and some require a certain income or other factor to be met.
People who live in rural and remote areas are ineligible to be enrolled.
Some people living in the states with large urban populations, or those who live on the west or south sides of the country, must have access to an area hospital or health care provider, and some residents must have health insurance.
How does Medicaid affect people who live and work in rural parts of the United States?
Medicaid enrolles a smaller share of Americans who live outside urban areas.
In addition to being covered by Medicaid, the federal program helps about 6 million people living outside urban regions and 2 million people in states with sparsely populated areas.
Medicaid enrollers in rural counties and in rural states generally live in areas that have fewer than 100 residents.
For those who do not have health coverage, Medicaid is a way to provide some relief to people living near their home and provide medical care for those who can’t afford it.
What about the expansion of Medicaid?
Some states have already begun expanding Medicaid, but many others are still working on the details.
At the federal level, the Trump administration has indicated it wants to expand the program to cover millions more people by 2020.
The governors of New York and California have said they are open to expansion, but other governors, such as the two governors of Maryland and Massachusetts, have been reluctant.
Other states that have been considering expansions include Texas, Mississippi and North Carolina.
