Tell Your State Legislator To Support Medicaid Expansion Today!

Expanding Medicaid would provide health care and prevent hospital cuts.

Mississippi legislators only have a few weeks left in the 2013 legislative session, and they have yet to expand Medicaid for hard-working Mississippians. Access to health care is on the line, especially for about 39,000 50 to 64-year-old Mississippians who cannot afford health insurance. Call your legislator at 1-888-333-5757 and tell him or her to expand Medicaid in Mississippi!

It’s still tough out there. Thousands of Mississippians have lost their jobs or are struggling in jobs without health insurance and don’t have access to affordable health care.

Expanding Medicaid would give hard-working families the security of knowing they can get the care they need, and the hospitals that serve them will be able to keep their doors open and prevent staff cuts. It would also give Mississippians access to critical preventative care, so fewer people will be forced to seek expensive emergency room care.

Call your legislator today at 1-888-333-5757 and tell him or her to support Medicaid Expansion in Mississippi!
