Families Can’t Wait for Health Care

Since the pandemic began, hundreds of thousands of North Carolinians have lost their jobs – and their health insurance. It’s time for the state legislature to act.

Medicaid expansion is a cost-effective solution

North Carolina can take advantage of available federal funding right now to bring health care to half a million people. Since 2014, 37 other states have done this by expanding the Medicaid program – including our neighbors in Virginia. Not one state has reversed this decision.

Getting coverage to uninsured people saves states money. Research in Montana, Colorado, Michigan, Louisiana, and Virginia found that expanding Medicaid resulted in significant savings to those states’ general funds.
