A Maine court yesterday ordered the state health commissioner to submit to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services by June 11 a state plan amendment ensuring Medicaid eligibility for qualified low-income residents as approved by voters in a state referendum last November. The referendum called for expanding the state’s Medicaid program by July 2, 2018 to adults with incomes up to 138% of the federal poverty level. The court agreed with petitioners that the administration had failed to submit the state plan amendment by April 3 as the referendum required.
