Medicaid expansion is a golden opportunity. My comments, although I could say more, are limited to one point that needs to be highlighted, and one in response to a previous letter to the editor.
1. Medicaid Expansion will save the Alaska Department of Corrections millions of dollars of unrestricted general funds each year. As a former commissioner of the Department of Corrections, I would be remiss not to highlight this. By including the hospitalization expenses of eligible offenders in Medicaid expansion, the department (state) saves a lot!
