Wisconsin — Thursday,  April 21, 2022 at 11:00 AM CT // 12:00 PM ET, Wisconsin Assembly Democratic Leader Greta Neubauer and State Rep. Kristina Shelton will join Protect Our Care and Citizen Action of Wisconsin to highlight the critical role Medicaid plays in providing Wisconsinites with access to quality, affordable health care. During the call, speakers will also urge Republican lawmakers to finally expand Medicaid and close the coverage gap in the Badger State.

Medicaid expansion is essential to ensure every Wisconsinite has quality, affordable health coverage. Research shows that Medicaid coverage improves health outcomes, strengthens economies, and saves lives. Medicaid has been a lifeline for rural communities, providing crucial support for hospitals and health care providers, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

There has never been a better time for Wisconsin to expand Medicaid.
