Trump to move forward with a $2 billion ‘Medicaid expansion’ to cover up to 5 million people, officials sayA senior administration aide confirmed to POLITICO that President Donald Trump will move forward on a $1.4 billion Medicaid expansion, which would cover up a million people in 2018, with a timeline to be finalized in early 2019.

Trump will unveil his budget in early January, and the proposal is expected to include provisions for the expansion.

But the details will not be fully outlined until after the budget is finalized, according to the aide.

The $1 billion Medicaid program is expected in the administration’s 2018 budget.

Under the law, states have to spend a specified amount per person to expand Medicaid.

States are not required to expand their Medicaid programs to cover more than 50 percent of their populations, so states have a long time to find the money they need to cover the expanded population.

Trump has not yet released the 2018 federal budget.

States that expanded Medicaid in 2018 had the option of either a tax credit or the federal government paying for the cost.

Some states opted to use the federal subsidy.
