Posted On: Mar. 6, 2023 10:09 AM CST

Republican leaders of North Carolina's Legislature reached an agreement March 2 on how to expand the state's Medicaid program, after years of blocking the policy, Axios reports. If the latest plan becomes law as expected, hundreds of thousands of the state's poorest residents would receive health care coverage. And it would bring to 40 the number of states plus Washington, D.C., that have expanded the safety net program under the Affordable Care Act.
