We need everyone’s help for one final push to stop harmful and expensive restrictions to Medicaid Expansion. We have until Sept. 22 to do all we can.
Despite Idahoans from all over the state and many legislators speaking out against these restrictions, Idaho Republicans ignored the will of the voters and passed a bill that added barriers to healthcare coverage for those who qualify for Medicaid Expansion.
Since the federal government is funding a large portion of Medicaid Expansion, the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare has to get permission to implement each individual restriction passed by the Legislature.
We need your help to stop one of the worst restrictions: work requirements.
From now until Sept. 22, the public can submit comments on the pending restrictions, and the federal government has a legal obligation to take those comments into consideration when evaluating whether or not it will allow restrictions.
In some cases, judges have been persuaded to not allow restrictions due to a large volume of comments from the public, so if there was ever a time for us to speak out, it’s NOW.
