Medicaid expansion is not the only major healthcare fight going on in state government these days. There is also a squabble over what to do about the state health plan.

Republican Treasurer Dale Folwell wants to institute a new reimbursement program, however major hospitals are opposed, and conservative lawmakers are fractured on their preference.

WUNC Data Reporter Jason deBruyn joins this edition of the WUNCPolitics Podcast to discuss the issue, as well as the latest legal challenge to partisan gerrymandering.

Jeff Tiberii first started posing questions to strangers after dinner at La Cantina Italiana, in Massachusetts, when he was two-years-old. Jeff grew up in Wayland, Ma., an avid fan of the Boston Celtics, and took summer vacations to Acadia National Park (ME) with his family. He graduated from the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University with a degree in Broadcast Journalism, and moved to North Carolina in 2006. His experience with NPR member stations WAER (Syracuse), WFDD (Winston-Salem) and now WUNC, dates back 15 years.
