Medicaid Coverage Gap Causing Problems

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

Since the rollout of Obamacare, it has been on minds of Americans across the United States.

With the deadline at midnight, there is a group of Montanans that don't qualify for subsidies or tax credits, and they don't qualify for Medicaid through the state of Montana. 50,000 Montanans to be exact. That's all according to the office of Montana's Commissioner of Securities and Insurance, Monica Lindeen.

The estimated 50,000 people have rural hospitals concerned. CEO of Roundup Memorial, Brad Howell, says with the increase of uninsured people, his hospital will have to take a closer look at the hospital finances.

Even if you don't qualify for tax credits, subsidies, or medicaid, your children could still qualify for the Healthy Montana Kid's Program. Go to this link or this link to find out if your child qualifies for the program.
