Pledge to Support Medicaid Expansion

As Kansas legislators wrap up their work in Topeka, it appears they are set to let another year pass without expanding Medicaid. We aren't done fighting for it though!

Our heroes on the frontline of Covid-19 response are working to save lives. While they do, Kansas should be doing everything it can to make sure our rural hospitals and health clinics are able to stay open to provide critical response to this crisis. Medicaid Expansion can help keep their doors open, treating all who need care, including the estimated 96,000 newly unemployed Kansans who will lose their health insurance due to COVID-19. This is in addition to the estimated 150,000 Kansans who were living in the KanCare Gap before the crisis. 

Medicaid is there to make sure the health needs of vulnerable Kansans are met. Expanding Medicaid is one of the best tools our state has to save lives, right now, in our moment of greatest need.
