Health insurance expert says Obama, Walker both putting some spin on Medicaid numbers

Posted: Updated:

MADISON (WKOW) -- The White House and Gov. Walker's administration are saying very different things about the impact of Wisconsin's decision to decline the Medicaid expansion available under the Affordable Care Act, but a local health insurance expert says neither version is completely accurate.

Jon Peacock, research director with Wisconsin Council on Children and Families, says numbers contained in a White House report on state's that rejected the Medicaid expansion aren't completely accurate.  But he says the Walker administration also greatly underestimated the need to expand Medicaid services in Wisconsin.

Capitol Bureau Chief Greg Neumann will have more on this story on 27 News at 6.
