US: Editorial: As Repeal Push Progressed, Foster Youth Became More Exposed to Medicaid Changes
Chronicle of Social Change – September 27, 2017
The push to replace or reform the Affordable Care Act appears to be stalled for the moment, as Republicans failed to pass a bill through the reconciliation process. Now, any substantive change will require 60 votes in the Senate, which means a bipartisan deal. That’s tough to imagine, but you never know. For Youth Services Insider, one takeaway from the past months of bill-drafting and horse-trading on health care is that there was some interest in holding foster youth harmless from any cuts to Medicaid. But that interest was not absolute; shielding of foster youth waned over time.
