U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius published a letter on Tuesday urging governors to participate in the Affordable Care Act’s (ACA’s) Medicaid expansion, which the Supreme Court ruled must be optional for states. Under the Medicaid expansion provision, the ACA offers coverage to everyone at or below 133 percent of the federal poverty line. The letter also announced meetings for both state and federal officials to discuss ACA implementation.
