The loss of eight rural hospitals in the last decade has left us less prepared to deal with the current crisis. Compounding the pandemic 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. And the projected $252 million surplus in our state’s 2022 Medicaid budget offers us a lifeline: It’s more than enough to cover the upfront cost of Medicaid expansion.
