Pieces in place for Virginia's Medicaid expansion

State Sen. Frank Wagner, a Republican, is the latest member of his party to express his openness to expanding Medicaid in Virginia to cover an estimated 400,000 people now without insurance.

In a column published in The Virginian-Pilot, Wagner said he believes a compromise is possible between Democrats who advocate for expansion, including Gov. Ralph Northam, and Republicans who now stand in opposition, primarily those who hold influential positions in his chamber.
