Medicaid Is More Important Than Ever Before. Lawmakers Must Work To Strengthen the Program and Ensure Access to Quality, Affordable Care.

Phoenix, AZ — Today, April 22, 2022 at 1:00 PM MST // 4:00 PM EDT, Valle del Sol CEO Carmen Heredia and David Lujan, President & CEO of Children’s Action Alliance, will join Protect Our Care Arizona to highlight how Medicaid has provided Arizonans with access to quality, affordable health care, strengthened local economies, and improved health outcomes across the state.

Medicaid has served as a lifeline during the pandemic, providing health coverage to a record number of Americans at a time they need it most. As Republicans undermine Medicaid to throw people off coverage and we look to the end of the COVID-19 public health emergency, health care coverage for millions of Americans hangs in the balance, requiring a solution to prevent widespread coverage losses. Speakers will identify opportunities for lawmakers to strengthen Medicaid, and ensure ongoing access to care.
