Indivisible AVL February General Meeting: Closing the Medicaid Coverage Gap

February 26 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

This special presentation will cover the current coverage gap that leaves 70% of low-income adults in NC uninsured and will show what we can do about it.

NC is one of only 17 states that have refused free federal funds through the ACA for closing the Medicaid coverage gap. We now have one of the highest uninsured rates in the country, with over 600,000 adults employed but uninsured. Currently, adults in NC aged 18 to 64 who aren’t disabled and don’t have a dependent child do NOT qualify for Medicaid, no matter how poor they are.

With positive leadership now in the NC Legislature and Governor’s office, we have a chance to expand coverage to all North Carolinians. Come learn how this would work and what you can do to make it happen.

Indivisible AVL monthly meetings are held on the 4th Tuesday of the month, from 6:00 to 7:00 pm. Gather at 5:30 to catch up on current actions, write your MOCs, and visit with activist friends. Meeting from 6:00 to 7:00 includes actions updates, news, and more in-depth information on a particular issue. Taco Tuesday specials at Mountain Madre include specially priced food and drinks.
