WE ARE BUILDING A NETWORK OF PUBLIC HEALTH OFFICIALS, HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONALS, PATIENT ADVOCATES, ELECTED OFFICIALS AND CONCERNED CITIZENS DEDICATED TO IMPROVING HEALTHCARE IN THE DAKOTAS.
South Dakota Medicaid Reform (2022)
Right now, too many South Dakotans work at jobs that don’t offer health insurance, forcing thousands of our neighbors and family members to choose between life-saving care and putting food on the table.
Reforming Medicaid will change that for over 40,000 South Dakotans, making our families healthier and our economy stronger. It will deliver healthcare to those who need it but can’t afford it, including many parents, seniors, and hardworking folks who earn less than $17,000 a year. It will also bring more than $300 million of our tax dollars home from Washington, D.C. every year that will make it possible to provide health insurance to the uninsured, protect our rural hospitals, boost our economy, and create thousands of new jobs.
Those are the reasons 38 other states have already chosen to reform #Medicaid and why Dakotans for Health thinks South Dakota should too. It is also why we are going to submit and pass a ballot measure in 2022 for #MedicaidExpansionSD and why we need your help.
