Add your name to the growing movement in support of closing the health insurance coverage gap by expanding Medicaid in North Carolina:
Whereas, the NC General Assembly has passed HB 76, Access to Healthcare Options, and the Governor signed the bill into law on March 27, 2023, making Medicaid Expansion the law in North Carolina that will provide health care coverage to approximately 600,000 North Carolinians.
It is essential that all low-income individuals have access to affordable and comprehensive healthcare, and it is the responsibility of the North Carolina General Assembly to ensure that this is possible through the timely approval of the State Budget.
Therefore, we call upon the General Assembly to prioritize the health and well-being of its citizens by swiftly approving the State Budget and completing the process of Medicaid Expansion on or before June 30, 2023.
Following passage of the state budget, NC DHHS will establish rules and a process for implementation and enrollment. We are pleased to join Care4Carolina to be able to share information with our community partners and channels to spread the word to North Carolinians in the gap.
