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

Manchester, NH — Today, April 27, 2022 at 10:00 AM ET, U.S. Representative Chris Pappas (D-NH-01) will join Granite State Progress and Protect Our Care New Hampshire during Medicaid Awareness Month to highlight how Medicaid expansion has provided Granite Staters with access to quality, affordable health care, strengthened local economies, and improved health outcomes across New Hampshire.

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. While the federal COVID-19 public health emergency order was extended, preventing vulnerable Granite Staters from falling off of Medicaid, speakers will discuss opportunities for lawmakers to strengthen Medicaid, and ensure ongoing access to care.
