Nabila A. started this petition to Senator Mark R. Warner and

Virginia’s method of being eligible for Medicaid isn’t fair. Unlike states in the north like New Jersey and New York, Virginia has too many strict guidelines for eligibility, which makes loss of opportunity for many. People all around might not have enough ability to actually pay for things they need like doctor visits, prescribed medicine, and others (ex: glasses, injections, etc.). Many people may even have serious medical issues, but due to not having enough money, they might just put themselves in more risk since they’re avoiding proper treatment. Especially at the time of COVID, tons of people aren’t even getting their wages! According to the Center of Budget and Policy Priorities, as of 2021, 25% of adults with children (and 10% without children) aren’t even caught up with their monthly rent, which is a red flag in terms of their wealth.  People that are impacted by this are middle class/low income families, which make up majority of the classes in America. What amount should be for all families to become eligible is at most $50,000 for a family of 6. Stop risking lives, support the change and go into action!
