Medicaid Expansion Advocacy Day

February 27 @ 8:30 am - 4:00 pm

On February 27, 2019, North Carolinians from the mountains to the sea will join together in Raleigh to tell our lawmakers that we want to close the health insurance coverage gap by expanding Medicaid during this legislative session. Carpools are getting organized from the Asheville area. Register for the Raleigh event here: https://goo.gl/forms/sd7T5nwJJbnHgFtw1

Here in Western North Carolina, we’re participating by encouraging everyone to call, email, and fax their reps in the state legislature, as well as the Senate and House majority leaders, demanding passage of a clean Medicaid Expansion bill during this legislative session.

All Buncombe County House Representatives and Senator Terry Van Duyn have co-sponsored a clean Medicaid Expansion Bill, with no work requirements, premiums, or other restrictive measures. Senate Bill 3 and House Bill 5, “Close the Medicaid Coverage Gap,” are identical and would expand Medicaid to all low-income individuals and families who currently fall in coverage gap.

Senate President Pro Tem Phil Berger and House Speaker Tim Moore have both opposed clean Medicaid Expansion and need to hear from us.
