Because Holbrook has Medicaid, the hospital got paid for its services, helping it keep its doors open and preventing Holbrook from a more perilous drive to the next nearest hospital more than 30 miles away.Millions of Americans got health insurance through the expansion of Medicaid programs in 31 states under the Affordable Care Act, and they are watching nervously as Republican lawmakers in Congress consider various proposals to repeal or phase out that expansion.Just two years ago, 15 of Kentucky's 65 rural hospitals were in danger of closing.[...] more than 440,000 Kentuckians — nearly 10 percent of the state's population — got health coverage through Medicaid after the state chose to expand the program under the Affordable Care Act.An analysis by The Commonwealth Fund, a health care advocacy group, showed the uncompensated care costs could rise 123 percent for those hospitals by 2026.While a closed hospital would be bad for doctors and patients, it would also do disproportionate damage to delicate rural economies where the local hospital is often one of the largest employers along with the public school system.Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, a Kentucky Republican, noted that rural hospitals "are in trouble already," adding to the challenges of crafting a health care bill.The Medicaid expansion is expected to cost Kentucky nearly $300 million by 2020, adding pressure to a state budget already stressed by a multi-billion public pension debt.
