Idaho’s Department of Health and Welfare is taking public testimony on the first of many Medicaid Expansion restrictions to coverage. The 1332 "waiver" is designed to keep thousands of Idahoans who earn between 100-138 of the Federal Poverty Level on private insurance instead of Medicaid Expansion. Those private plans are less reliable, less comprehensive and MORE expensive than Medicaid Expansion. A Federal Judge struck down restrictions in two other states based in part on citizens’ overwhelming opposition to impediments to coverage. We NEED you to show up and speak against this 1332 "waiver."
Our friends at Close the Gap have created a messaging document explaining the 1332 waiver. It can also help guide you when crafting your testimony. You can find that here!
