Gov. McCrory to hold off on Medicaid decision until after court case – Fayetteville Observer: Top News

Republican Gov. Pat McCrory said Wednesday he won’t make a recommendation whether North Carolina should expand insurance to more of the uninsured through the federal health care law until after a U.S. Supreme Court ruling.

Speaking to The Associated Press in a brief interview, McCrory said it makes sense to wait on litigation challenging some federal tax credits in the health care law linked to coverage obtained through federally-run online health insurance markets.

The court’s oral arguments are next month and a ruling is expected in the summer, about when the legislature traditionally seeks to adjourn. That could push any legislative action on a recommendation to 2016.
