The Trump administration has made clear it would like to remake the American health care system. There's been the protracted battle over the Affordable Care Act. Now, there are some new moves on the future of Medicaid.
On Monday, the federal government released decisions on requests from two states to change the way they administer the health care program for low-income people.
The first decision came on lifetime caps. Kansas wanted to cut off Medicaid benefits for some people after 36 months.
Most people are familiar with some form of triage: When you go to an emergency room, you first sit down with a triage nurse who records your symptoms, takes your vital signs and assesses the urgency of your medical need.
As of Thursday, that's happening over the phone for 911 callers in Washington, D.C., where triage nurses now sit alongside 911 dispatchers to help field calls.
