STATE QUESTION 802 IS MEDICAID EXPANSION
WHO DOES MEDICAID EXPANSION HELP?
Medicaid expansion would help Oklahomans struggling to get by — like individuals making less than $17,000 a year or a family of three making less than $29,000.
People who would be covered by Medicaid expansion include parents who work hard at jobs that don’t offer insurance, seniors nearing retirement who have lost their healthcare, and Oklahomans who are trapped in the coverage gap –meaning they make too much money to qualify for Medicaid but too little to afford care on the insurance exchange.
Medicaid expansion provides a lifeline for Oklahoma families who are slipping through the cracks in our healthcare system and it halts the agonizing choice that too many families face when deciding if they can afford critical medical care — like heart medicine or cancer treatments.
HOW WOULD IT HELP OUR ECONOMY?
Expanding Medicaid would bring more than a billion of our dollars back to Oklahoma every year. The money we pay in federal taxes now is already paying for healthcare in states like New York and California. It’s time to bring our tax dollars home to help Oklahomans instead — to boost our economy and keep our rural hospitals open, creating and saving good paying jobs right here in our state.
