Medicaid & Expansion: ACS CAN will advocate for low-income individuals and families to have access to health insurance coverage through state Medicaid programs. We will support policies that preserve funding and access to Medicaid for low-income parents and adults and will advocate for Medicaid expansion in states that have not increased eligibility up to 138 percent of the federal poverty level.
Telehealth: Telehealth provides cancer patients and survivors with a convenient means of accessing both cancer care and primary care – a particularly important option for individuals living in greater Wisconsin and the immunocompromised. Telehealth can help reduce health disparities and improve health outcomes for all individuals. ACS CAN supports the use of telehealth services, recognizing that patients’ and survivors’ use must always be voluntary and cannot replace all face-to-face visits.
