One of the main ways Obamacare was supposed to extend health insurance was by putting more people on Medicaid, the federal-state health care program that serves low-income children, disabled Americans, pregnant women, and seniors. But can states afford it? Do they have any other options?

On Friday at noon ET, join us for a Google+ hangout on the Medicaid expansion. Our guests will be:

Jonathan Ingram, director of research for the Foundation for Government Accountability

Robert Alt, president of the Buckeye Institute for Public Policy Solutions

Nina Owcharenko, director of Heritage’s Center for Health Policy Studies and the Preston A. Wells, Jr. Fellow

Ed Haislmaier, senior research fellow in Health Policy Studies at The Heritage Foundation

Get ready for the hangout with one of Heritage’s pieces on the Medicaid expansion:
