Healthcare & Childcare

Today, the House and the Senate will be debating their respective budget proposals. The House's proposal would extend Medicaid coverage to residents who earn up to 138 percent of the federal poverty level. This plan extends coverage to an estimated additional 300,000 people. Thank you for your continued support of this crucial change!

Call To Action:

Call or email your Senator and Delegate and voice your support for expanding Medicaid benefits.

Talking Points:
  1. In Virginia, 240,000 low-income people are stuck in this health care “coverage gap.”
  2. Expanding Medicaid would also help in the fight against the opioid epidemic by providing mental illness and substance abuse services.
  3. Providing healthcare to the poor lowers costs for everyone and ensures a healthier and happier population!
