Medicaid Expansion Makes Sense in Idaho

medicaid expansion

Kristin Collum supports Medicaid expansion in Idaho because it makes economic sense and will create thousands of jobs.

  • It’s time to close the Medicaid Gap. It is cruel and financially irresponsible of our state government to refuse federal funds which would provide affordable health coverage for 62,000 people.
  • Healthcare is a basic human need and right. It’s time to stop insurance and pharmaceutical companies from profiting at the expense of our health and lives. Healthcare should be affordable for all.
  • Expanding Medicaid goes a long way toward sustaining and growing our currently understaffed rural hospitals and medical clinics. Rural medical providers will be able to keep the doors open for their communities because more patients will be insured.
