Next week, the Medicaid Innovation and Reform Commission (MIRC) is planning to meet. As you know, this commission is tasked with ensuring that certain reforms to Medicaid are met before moving forward with expansion.
We need your help to remind the committee members how Virginia feels about Medicaid expansion! We need to remind them that Medicaid expansion will create jobs, provide insurance for hundreds of thousands of Virginians, lower health insurance rates, and not cost Virginia a dime for the first several years.
Will you take a moment and call members of the committee and let them know that Virginia needs Medicaid expansion as soon as possible to create jobs, save lives, and boost our economy?
I know you can’t call every person on this list, but maybe you can call a few that are close to you before the weekend and make sure they know we support Medicaid expansion in Virginia!
