Expanding Virginia’s Medicaid program would ensure hundreds of thousands of Virginians can live without the fear that getting sick will break the bank. The Affordable Care Act and our federal tax dollars already pay for this expansion. When people without health insurance end up in the emergency room, not only are they there with expensive medical emergencies that could have been prevented, but that cost is built into the premiums of people who do have insurance. By implementing a Medicaid solution and getting more people insurance, we all pay less.
I am asking you to please vote to expand Medicaid in Virginia.
