Idaho's elected officials must decide whether to accept new Medicaid funds that would provide coverage for families earning up to 138% of the federal poverty level (only $32,500 for a family of four). This would extend Medicaid coverage to approximately 104,000 more Idahoans. As a pediatrician who cares for many underserved and uninsured children, I believe that enhancing Medicaid availability is absolutely essential.
