Medicaid Expansion

More than 600,000 North Carolinians live in the healthcare gap. These are parents, workers, veterans, and neighbors. They are people just like you who are working hard to make a living, but their jobs don’t provide insurance, and they don’t make enough to buy it on their own. Our legislators have recently signed two bills that profess support of Medicaid Expansion, yet even as people are left struggling, suffering, and even dying, the North Carolina  House still refuses to act now to expand Medicaid.

We need you! We have made more progress in the last few months than in the 9+ years previous. 

  • Just last month, the Senate overwhelmingly voted to pass Medicaid Expansion. 
  • The House signed a separate bill professing support of Medicaid expansion but delaying a vote until the end of the year and leaning on yet another committee to study and research.

We call on our Legislative Representatives to provide care for our most vulnerable and impacted NOW and pass Medicaid expansion.

On July 26, the NC General Assembly reconvene.
Will our legislators be done negotiating while our lives hang in the balance? 

Flex those  powerful justice muscles. We aim to pass Medicaid Expansion in North Carolina THIS YEAR

We Go Where They Go, and Get Answers!

Why didn’t find our Legislators pass Medicaid Expansion? We want to get them on the record, and let the public know exactly what is going on.

Over the next few months, your representative may be running for reelection. They will be holding public events, and inviting the public to interact with them. This is the perfect time for us as constituents to ask  hard questions and get folks on the public record… why won’t our representatives choose healthcare, well-being and economic assistance for 600,000 North Carolinians? 

Sign up for our MedEx Advocacy Trainings!

Join us as we power up to make Medicaid Expansion a reality in North Carolina. Together we will strategize how to organize and mobilize, make calls, write letters, make a legislative visit through Zoom, hold a town hall, you name it!
