Make the right choice and expand Medicaid coverage

    1. Sponsored by

      United Way for Southeastern Michigan

Michigan has a unique opportunity to increase the access to health care and cut the number of uninsured by almost half. We can expand Medicaid coverage to 470,000 individuals with long-term, sustainable funding that will lead to immense savings down the road.

Governor Rick Snyder's bold proposal could ultimately save the state up to $1 billion in the next ten years. But most importantly, it will save lives, help families weather health crises and reduce the spiraling health care cost burden for businesses and hospitals. We can't let politics get in the way of this opportunity to transform our state's health care landscape and break the cycle of poverty.

Your voice is critical. Remind your lawmaker to do the right thing and support Medicaid expansion.
