As most healthcare stakeholders know by now, the Idaho Supreme not only rejected a challenge to Medicaid expansion, it didn’t mince any words. Two justices rejected the premise of the challenge on procedural issues alone, while all the justices rejected the legal basis for the challenge.
The issue now rests with the Idaho legislature, which must decide a number of budgetary issues before turning it over to the Department of Health and Welfare to administer. Because of the high interest in this issue, the Idaho Healthcare Summit will include a number of speakers and panels on it, including:
Remarks and Q&A by DHW Director Dave Jeppesen.
A panel discussion of legislator, including House Speaker Scott Bedke and other members from the House and Senate.
