“States are certainly capable of coming up with innovative, successful alternatives to the current federal requirements for providing health care to low-income individuals. Block grant waivers are certainly a realistic possibility,” she said. “So far, the Obama administration seems quite willing to entertain state experiments with various aspects of federal health reform implementation, including Medicaid expansion.”
