TWEET @ GOV. LEE TO EXPAND MEDICAID IN THE WAKE OF THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC
As Tennesseans, we want our state lawmakers to address the health and economics impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and ensure compliance with the testing and treatment protocols. Our leaders must act now and expand Medicaid to prepare and to protect Tennessee’s future.
If the TN legislature brought home our federal tax dollars by expanding Medicaid, that would allow our state to provide health insurance to 300,000 Tennesseans, affording them financial security and access to necessary health care including emergency COVID-19 testing and treatment. Click here to learn more about who these 300,000 Tennesseans are and why they fall into the “coverage gap” and do not currently recieve health insurance through their jobs.
