A new Medicaid program made its debut in West Virginia a little more than seven months ago. As of last week, it’s expanded to 40 counties. The plan is designed to push low-income Medicaid recipients to make good health care decisions, in exchange for broader health insurance coverage.

Medicaid has launched a big public relations campaign to alert 150,000 recipients that change is coming. But some worry they’re not getting the message, and may be surprised to find themselves with less coverage than before.
