Gary Alexander on Marketplace — Should Medicaid cover food? — February 14, 2023

Paragon’s Gary Alexander was featured on Marketplace on February 14, 2023. Sabri Ben-Achour and Stephanie Hughes framed a story about the changing definition of health care — and some states are trying to change the definition to include food.

Gary Alexander was quoted for the story, saying:

“This is something outside the scope of Medicaid. And really, the federal government has a robust food program.”
