Will they debate Medicaid?

With all the debate on Medicare, this year’s election has not seen a lot of discussion of Medicaid (Medi-Cal in California) that covers low-income children and parents, and disabled and elderly Americans. Former President Bill Clinton made a point of it in his DNC Convention remarks, and truth be told, Medicaid actually covers more people.  

Finally, today, October 3, at 1 p.m.,  PBS NewsHour is hosting a live chat with Phil Galewitz of Kaiser Health News, about the future of Medicaid and the presidential candidates’ proposals for the program.  Questions can be submitted via the PBS NewsHour Health page, to onlinehealth@newshour.org, or via Twitter @jasokane.
