Medicaid Expansion: the Sooner Tomblin Decides, the Better, Advocates say

"I think it's good that West Virginia is taking a good long look at expansion and weighing the options," said Ted Boettner, executive director of the West Virginia Center on Budget and Policy. "There's not a thing wrong with that, but I do think we need to move forward.

"As soon as we can make a decision, the better we'll be able to enroll people in the program. It's one of the pitfalls of waiting too long."
