Please consider sharing this opportunity with your family and friends to ensure NC lawmakers know the importance to all North Carolinians.
Earlier this month, the NC Senate passed legislation expanding Medicaid to close the health insurance coverage gap. This legislation now awaits action in the NC House. Contact your NC House of Representative urging them pass legislation increasing access to healthcare for more than 600,000 North Carolinians!

Almost 1,200 North Carolina lives will be saved each year once Medicaid is expanded. That is because people with health coverage are more likely to get preventative care, more likely to catch and treat diseases like cancer and heart disease early, and less likely to skip medications because of the cost.
Expansion will give hundreds of thousands of people in rural areas access to affordable health insurance, while creating jobs and strengthening the economy in rural communities.
Medicaid expansion can build a healthier workforce for businesses like childcare, restaurants, and the service industry by helping more employees have access to affordable health insurance.
Medicaid expansion increases access to mental health and substance use treatment.
