ACHI Health Policy Director Craig Wilson talks to Fresh Take Georgia about new federal incentives for states to adopt Medicaid expansion under the Affordable Care Act. Wilson says the incentives will test how long states like Georgia are willing to continue holding out.

“With the enhanced match, the little sweetener that Congress put in the American Rescue Plan, I can’t really see from a fiscal standpoint that it’s a bad deal for any state that’s holding out,” Wilson says in the story.
