Their findings will be presented to the governor at his <a href="http://www.utahsummit.com/">health summit </a>next week. Among those options, is to expand charity care in the state. KUER looks at what forms of charity care already exist in Utah, and whether this model could be a realistic alternative to expanding Medicaid.</p> Mon, 16 Sep 2013 03:35:22 +0000 Andrea Smardon 35443 at http://kuer.org Is Charity Care an Alternative to Expanding Medicaid in Utah?
