Join us to learn the latest on Medicaid expansion for NC!
The North Carolina legislature is back in session which means MomsRising is back again to tell lawmakers to expand Medicaid! The good news is that this year we’re closer than ever to making sure low-income uninsured adults get the health coverage they need, so now is the time to make sure you’re ready to advocate!
We’re co-hosting a webinar with Down Home NC for attendees across the state to talk about Medicaid expansion advocacy efforts on February 9th.
What’s happening? For more than a decade, lawmakers in NC have refused to expand Medicaid to low-income uninsured adults, leaving more than 1 million North Carolinians without health insurance. Now, after years of advocacy, legislative leaders in both the NC Senate and House are on record in support of Medicaid expansion, and we need to help get it over the finish line!
Right now, negotiations at the legislature are continuing behind closed doors, and we’re gearing up for the biggest push yet to get Medicaid expansion in NC done. There are 10 years of research that demonstrates the positive impact of Medicaid expansion, including early detection of life-threatening diseases and a decrease in premature deaths for older adults aged 55-64.
