LEWISTON, Maine - Maine hospitals are seeing bad debt and charity care costs skyrocket. It comes at a time when individuals have more options to get health coverage under the Affordable Care Act.

AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) _ Maine lawmakers have failed again to override Republican Gov. Paul LePage's vetoes of bills that would expand Medicaid under the federal health care law.
 
The Senate voted 21-14 in favor of overturning LePage's rejection of Senate Democratic Leader Troy Jackson's Medicaid expansion bill, falling three votes short of the two-thirds majority support it needed to survive.
