After a defeat on the ballot last November we knew going into the 2019 legislative session we had a very important job to do - protect access to healthcare for almost 100,000 Montanans!
We knew it was not going to be easy and that there would be a lot of negotiations but we are excited to share that Montanans can rest a little easier knowing that health care has been protected for nearly 100,000 hard working Montanans. House Bill 658 passed the legislature last week and will be headed to the Governor’s desk any day.

This was a difficult fight and at times we were worried we might not be successful but with hard work and support from advocates like you it all came together. We want to thank everyone who took the time to message their representatives. Thousands of health advocates across Montana spent countless hours making calls, meeting with legislator’s, writing letters and finding ways to support their friends and neighbors on Medicaid and it made a difference.
