Baton Rouge, La (NBC33) — State senators weighed some of the options for the state under the Affordable Healthcare Act today.
Governor Bobby Jindal is still opposing Medicaid expansion, while members of the Senate Health and Welfare Committee are taking a look at what some other states are doing.
Parties involved in the debate say that the answer isn't set in stone, and it's still up for discussion.
Reps from the Department of Health and Hospitals spoke to the committee. They say they're opposed to Medicaid expansion, and claim it would cost the state more.
