What Supreme Court ruling means for state Medicaid programs

Here is a nice news report about what the Medicaid portion of the Supreme Court decision means for state governments.  Short version: North Carolina needs to decide whether to expand Medicaid by up to 500,000 people, with the federal government picking up 95% of the cost.  Left unsaid in this news report: hospitals are going to push hard to expand Medicaid, so they will have more paying customers.  Wonder if they will have success in states like NC, with Republican legislatures.
