Tha MA Mandate And The Medicaid Buy-In
DemfromCt discusses how the Massachusetts mandate works:
[U]sing MA as an example to compare to the Senate version of health care reform (HCR) is tricky. MA uses Medicaid/SCHIP as a "public option" of sorts, the Senate does not.
(Emphasis supplied.) Again, offering a Medicaid buy in to all mandated person is the solution to a lot of problems here. Not incidentally, it can solve the Nelson/Stupak problem.
