Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin, in a letter to House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., last month estimated the state's portion of Medicaid expansion will amount to $1.2 billion over the next five years.

Under Obamacare, states can choose to take additional federal funds to expand Medicaid.
If the federal Affordable Care Act is repealed in its entirety, the county would have to once again absorb the costs of providing health care to several thousand indigent residents who now receive health insurance through the act's expanded Medicaid program - called Medi-Cal in California.

But, it also said: "Obamacare's Medicaid expansion for able-bodied adult enrollees would be repealed in its current form".
The signature project of former President Barack Obama, the ACA created state Marketplaces that offer health insurance plans.
The replacement plan would have no individual mandate. Johnson Supervisor Rod Sullivan said that those on Medicaid are the people who are most in need of health care. People who elect not to buy insurance at the outset would pay a surcharge when they do, and could end up paying more if they've been ill. So far, Republicans have not agreed on a replacement that is best, but work is still being done to replace the ACA.
The first step also could enact some elements of a new system, such as expanded health savings accounts popular with many Republicans, GOP aides and lawmakers said.
