June 9 Medicaid Expansion Event
We are going to the Capitol on June 9 with a simple message…and that is… CLOSE THE BUDGET GAP BY CLOSING THE COVERAGE GAP: EXPAND MEDICAID NOW!
Right now, Pennsylvania is facing a $1.3 billion budget shortfall — a huge gap lawmakers will have to close before June 30th.
We know just how they can do it: By saying YES to Medicaid Expansion and expanding coverage before June 30th.
Opting in to draw down federal funding would expand health care coverage for working Moms, veterans, and low-income Pennsylvanians trapped in the “Pennsylvania Gap” and allow lawmakers to secure more than $600 million in savings and new revenue for the upcoming fiscal year.
We can close the budget gap by closing the coverage gap. It’s that simple.
