VERONA -- A pair of area state legislators told Augusta County Republicans on Monday that significant reforms are needed before Virginia expands its Medicaid program, and one suggested that the newly eligible Medicaid population could better be served by free clinics and community health centers.

Sen. Emmett Hanger, R-Mount Solon, and Del. Steve Landes, R-Weyers Cave, offered their thoughts on the possible expansion of the federal-state health insurance program. Hanger serves as the chairman of Virginia's Medicaid Innovation and Reform Commission and Landes is the vice chairman. The commission of 10 Virginia legislators will make a decision on the expansion of the program in the state either late this year or it could happen during the 2014 General Assembly, Hanger said.
