Topic: Medicaid

With loss of income and health care needs rising due to COVID-19, many Americans are turning to Medicaid for the first time. Just as many Americans need Medicaid, states are strapped by pandemic costs and may be forced to cut services, including Medicaid. The federal government can step in and increase its portion to ensure that all Americans have the health services they need.
