Maine gov. resists Medicaid expansion

This state line divides the Medicaid debate

Donna Wall cares for her three adult autistic children at her home in Lewiston, Maine. It’s a full-time job. Sons Christopher and Brandon have frequent outbursts, and the stress of tending to them can be overwhelming.

When her twin sons turned 18 a year and a half ago, Maine’s Medicaid program dropped her health insurance. Wall is considered a “childless adult” in Maine and other states that didn’t expand Medicaid, and so she isn’t eligible for coverage. She can no longer get her antidepressants and anti-anxiety medications. She can’t see her psychologist or a doctor to check up on a troubling spot on her eye.
