Strengthen Medicaid to fight the pandemic

The Medicaid program is a powerful tool to fight COVID-19 and stabilize North Carolina’s economy.

Medicaid has a history of helping children and families in times of crisis. In North Carolina, the vast majority of people who depend on Medicaid for their health care are children under 18, and adults with disabilities. Medicaid is even more important in rural North Carolina, where more than half of all children get their health care thanks to Medicaid.
