Kevin Lindamood joins Congressman Cummings and Commissioner Wen in defending Medicaid

05.15.17

As the fight for access to affordable health care plays out in D.C., our CEO Kevin Lindamood joined Congressman Elijah Cummings and Baltimore City Health Department Commissioner Dr. Leana Wen in a Baltimore Sun op-ed pushing back against potential cuts to Medicaid.

When Medicaid expansion went into effect under the Affordable Care Act in 2014, the number of our clients covered through the program skyrocketed - almost overnight. Today, 90% of our clients are insured by Medicaid, up from just 30% before Medicaid expansion took root. Put simply, Medicaid expansion means more health care for more people who are living in poverty.  

But now, a bill that would roll back Medicaid expansion and some of the ACA’s most important provisions for people living in poverty would undue all that. See how the op-ed pushes back against those cuts here.
