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. Even as people are left struggling, suffering, and even dying, the North Carolina General Assembly has refused to expand Medicaid and provide care for our most vulnerable and impacted.

North Carolinians already pay for Medicaid through our taxes, and we need the NCGA to allow our contribution to come home and help people who live here.

We need you! We believe we have a real chance to bring healthcare to hundreds and thousands of our neighbors. Won’t you join us, as we gather our stories and flex our powerful justice muscles? We aim to pass Medicaid Expansion in North Carolina THIS YEAR!

*The Affordable Care Act’s (ACA) Medicaid expansion expanded Medicaid coverage to nearly all adults with incomes up to 138% of the Federal Poverty Level and provided all states with money to cover their expansion populations– but the North Carolina General Assembly has refused this offer, even while their own voters overwhelmingly want Medicaid Expansion to pass!
