2 million people in 11 states across the country are living without health insurance simply because they live in a state that has refused to expand Medicaid. These folks live in the “Medicaid Gap”, living sicker and dying younger than those with health insurance. 60% of people living in the coverage gap are people of color, left behind because leaders in those states are putting politics ahead of people. Medicaid Covers US is our campaign to promote Medicaid as one part of the solution to achieve health equity in the US. Health coverage is something we all need and we all deserve. It’s time to close the gap.
