Medicaid Expansion Passes!
We will be sending more information in the near future, but below is the statement ICAN released after the Iowa House joined the Iowa Senate in voting in the best interests of Iowans! A big THANK YOU to our members!
In the final hours of the 2013 Iowa Legislative Session, lawmakers and Governor Branstad set aside petty politics and focused on the needs of Iowans. The real winners today are the thousands of Iowans who now have a chance at health care security.
While there are still hurdles along the path of full implementation, this is an important first step after months of delay.
Credit must be given to the thousands of Iowans and hundreds of organizations who expressed their support for Medicaid Expansion in phone calls, lobby visits, letters, emails – voicing their opinions to the Governor and their legislators.
Iowa Citizen Action Network is proud of the work we have done on this very important issue, along with dozens of organizations, as part of the Healthiest Iowa Initiative.
