CMS last week gave Idaho the go-ahead to implement its Medicaid expansion as planned in January 2020. The move comes following a successful ballot initiative in November 2018, though lawmakers added more restrictive provisions, such as a work requirement, that has yet to be approved by CMS. Idaho currently serves 278,919 Medicaid beneficiaries, and expansion could bring coverage to an additional 120,000 lives.
