NGA Requests Guidance for Implementing ACA Provisions

July 5, 2012

In a July 2 letter sent to U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, the National Governors Association (NGA) requests guidance to clarify options available to governors under the Affordable Care Act that was recently upheld by the Supreme Court.

The letter requests specific guidance pertaining to states that choose to partially enact or decline to enact the Medicaid expansion provided for in the AC, and how less than full implementation will affect funding levels and other Medicaid provisions.
