Alabama's health care system is under stress. Amid the national coronavirus outbreak, government and health care leaders are grappling with how best to respond. And Alabama recently lost its eighth rural hospital since 2011. The closures have left our health care network tattered, with more and more Alabamians wondering where they'll get the care they need.
To compound the stress, hundreds of thousands of Alabamians are trapped in the health coverage gap. Going without insurance puts them at medical and financial risk every day.
There is one fiscally responsible solution that will cover the uninsured, stabilize our rural hospitals and bring billions of your federal tax dollars home to Alabama. It's called Medicaid expansion.
Contact Gov. Ivey and tell her that NOW is the time to expand Medicaid.
