Rally to Protect Medicaid

Cartoon capitol

Colorado state legislators are trying to institute unnecessary and harmful restrictions in the Colorado Medicaid program through SB18-214 (Request Self-sufficiency Waiver Medicaid Program). 

Most people on Medicaid who can work, do so. Nearly 8 in 10 non-disabled adults with Medicaid coverage are members of working families, and nearly 60 percent are working themselves. Of those not working, more than one-third reported that illness or a disability was the primary reason; 28 percent reported that they were taking care of home or family; and 18 percent were in school. Hinging health care coverage on the ability to find and maintain work penalizes the Medicaid population for their poverty.  Locking them out of coverage could perpetuate further the barriers that prevented them from holding work in the first place.

Please join us at the Colorado Capitol on Thursday, March 29 to stand up against SB18-214.
