WINSTON-SALEM, North Carolina — Representatives from think tanks, interest groups, the General Assembly and health industry CEOs are talking about the future of Medicaid expansion in North Carolina.

Wake Forest University law school is scheduled to host the discussion Monday evening.

Louisiana this month became the 31st state to accept Washington's offer to pay most or all the cost of expanding Medicaid. North Carolina is part of a cluster of Southeastern states that have rejected the idea.

Monday's panel includes former hospital president and current Republican state Rep. Donny Lambeth of Forsyth County, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina CEO Brad Wilson and representatives of the League of Women Voters and the conservative John Locke Foundation.

The event will be webcast live at: http://go.wfu.edu/j9v.
