Indigent Care and Medicaid for the Masses

In the coming days the supreme court of the United States will reach a decision on the constitutionality of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care act.  The individual mandate portion of the act has sparked the greatest nationwide controversy but it is the fate of expanded Medicaid that has indigent care providers and advocates across the commonwealth holding their breath. Host Cathy Lewis speaks with these groups about the roles they play in caring, and providing for Virginia’s indigent population and what effect the Supreme Court’s ruling will have on their ability to do so effectively.
