Dear Legislator,
We urge you to expand Medicaid in your state. Under Medicaid expansion, all people regardless of disease who earn less than 138 percent of the federal poverty line will qualify for Medicaid. And, if your state expands coverage, the federal government will pay at least 90 percent of the costs. It is good for the health of your community and your economy.

Around 15 million additional citizens will receive benefits if all states choose to expand. The federal match rate will never drop below 90 percent. The means with a $76 billion investment by the states, the federal government will pay $952 billion in matching funds. That’s a healthier and wealthier America.

Expanding Medicaid coverage is a good idea because it will:

  • Reduce mortality rates
  • Lead to an increase in the well being of individuals
  • Increase health care access and use among beneficiaries
  • Reduce the spread of infectious disease
  • Reduce health disparities

We all need expansion because COVERAGE COUNTS!
