Gov. Asa Hutchinson’s administration and some lawmakers will roll out their newest version of Medicaid expansion Monday.  ARHOME, Arkansas Health and Opportunity For Me, will be sponsored by State Sen. Missy Irvin, R-Moutain View and State Rep. Michelle Gray, R-Bethesda.

In a Talk Business & Politics interview, Irvin, Gray, and Arkansas Secretary of Human Services Cindy Gillespie discussed ARHOME’s details and political obstacles for the healthcare program expected to cover more than 300,000 low-income residents who make below 138% of the federal poverty level.

The primary goals of ARHOME are to move people out of poverty and into work and education, to produce better health outcomes, and slow the growth of state spending.
