Medicaid Covers US

Welcome to Medicaid Covers US, our new project to create a conversation about Medicaid and the role it plays in the health and well-being of our families, friends, and communities. We’re sharing stories and creating conversations about how having health insurance through Medicaid helps Americans stay healthy, go to work and care for their families. 

When we ensure that people get the care they need, our communities – our hospitals, schools and economy – thrive. Join the conversation and explore how Medicaid covers US.
