The details, however, can get confusing quickly. It’s hard enough to keep track of all the names — private option, Arkansas Works, Medicaid expansion, Obamacare, ACA, AHCA. On top of that, it seems like every month lawmakers propose to shift the policy ground beneath our feet. The Arkansas legislature met in a special session earlier this month to approve Governor Hutchinson’s plan to alter the state’s Medicaid expansion, adding work requirements and cutting eligibility. That plan now awaits approval from the federal government.
