Vote YES on Proposition 2

Access to affordable health care coverage for many Idahoans has been an issue for years, since the Idaho Legislature did not expand Medicaid when the Affordable Care Act originally passed. Since then efforts have been made to cover the approximately 78,000 Idahoans who do not qualify for Medicaid and are not eligible for subsidies on the Idaho insurance exchange. Despite several attempts, study committees, and many different plans and ideas, Idaho still has thousands without health care coverage.
