Gov. Kemp recently announced the federal approval of two waivers which will allow the state to expand health insurance coverage outside of the provisions set in the Affordable Care Act (ACA).
One waiver allows expanded Medicaid coverage to adults with income up to 100 percent of the poverty level. The second waiver provides options to Georgians who make too much to qualify for Medicaid, but too little to receive premium subsidies through ACA.
The Georgia-centric health care plan includes requirements to participate in at least 80 hours per month of acceptable activity such as higher education, job training or community service.
