LePage: Medicaid Expansion Would Add Smokers and Heavy Drinkers

AUGUSTA - The LePage administration says a new study out of the University of Michigan supports the governor's long-held position opposing the expansion of Mainecare, the state's medicaid program.

The study indicates that expanding medicaid would add younger men, smokers, and heavy drinkers to the rolls.

 

In a written statement, Governor LePage says these findings prove that expanding Mainecare would deplete the resources vital to caring for elderly and disabled Mainers.

 

The congressional budget office projects 13-million people will be eligible for medicaid between now and 2022.
