Governor Still Says No to Medicaid Expansion

by Elizabeth W. on Thursday, November 7, 2013

Though we were hopeful Governor Bentley would soften his stance, he remains steadfast in his opposition to expanding Medicaid. This year, the Alabama Legislature passed and Governor Bentley signed legislation to reform Medicaid. Many thought the Medicaid overhaul would change his position. It did not.

Medicaid is an important lifeline for many Alabamians so it’s good for health, but expansion is also good for the economy.  A new study commissioned by the Alabama Hospital Association shows that expanding Medicaid in Alabama would create 30,700 jobs.

We need our advocates to keep beating the drum for increased access to health care in Alabama.  Be sure to log into the You’re the Cure and take action on all Access to Care Action Alerts.  Governor Bentley and your elected officials need to hear from you!
