Abstract

While the Obama presidency saw the introduction of Obamacare and the expansion of Medicaid in many US states, President Trump’s administration may well roll back these reforms. Nickolas Zaller argues that while they can, Southern states should expand Medicaid, one effect of which would be to improve health outcomes for those involved with the criminal justice system. He suggests that in order to expand Medicaid, these states should focus on incremental change, re-brand Medicaid as a state led initiative, and link it to criminal justice reform.
