Raw Story: “The Biden administration on Friday rescinded approval for changes to Texas’ Medicaid program granted by the Trump administration, saying that federal Medicaid officials “materially erred” by speeding approval for the state’s $100 billion-plus request in January,” Dan Diamond reported for The Washington Post on Friday.

“Two federal health officials, speaking on the condition of anonymity to discuss private conversations, characterized Friday’s decision as an effort to push Texas toward accepting the Affordable Care Act’s Medicaid expansion. Texas, which has more uninsured than any other state, is one of only 12 that have not expanded the program.”

“Health advocates have called Texas’ waiver an effort to work around the federal Medicaid expansion by setting up alternate funding to help cover the costs of uninsured patients,” the newspaper reported.
