Brewer Quoted in Press Herald Article on Medicaid Study

Mark Brewer, a political science professor at the University of Maine, spoke with the Portland Press Herald for an article about a Medicaid study being conducted by a contractor who was hired by Gov. Paul LePage. The study aims to look at ways MaineCare, Maine’s Medicaid program, could grant health insurance to an additional 70,000 uninsured residents. Brewer said LePage’s one-time praise of alternative methods of expanding health care coverage is unlikely to make results in the upcoming election year.
