Medicaid Expansion: Why is it so important?

Wednesday, June 10, 2020 – 7:00pm-8:00pm


This event is over.

Why is Medicaid expansion important to so many people in North Carolina, especially during the Covid-19 public health crisis? This public health crisis has shown us that having people unable to get the health care they need is a danger to all of us. Expanding Medicaid would ensure that people with low incomes, many of whom are our essential workers, would be able to have access to the healthcare they need during the Covid-19 pandemic and beyond. With the rise of unemployment, and many people losing their employer sponsored health coverage, expanding Medicaid in NC becomes more important than ever. As those in the bleeding disorders community know well, access to medication and quality healthcare providers is essential. Join us for this informative webinar to learn more about Medicaid Expansion and how you can help ensure that your fellow bleeding disorders community members, as well as so many others across North Carolina can get the care they need.

Rebecca Cerese, Health Engagement Coordinator at the NC Justice Center, will be our guest speaker. Rebecca will share more about how lack of Expansion has impacted the North Carolina community. We’ll also hear from Kimberly Ramseur, JD, MPH, Senior Manager for Policy & Advocacy at Hemophilia Federation of America and Nathan Schaefer, MSW, Vice President of Public Policy at the National Hemophilia Foundation. Kimberly and Nathan will help explain how the bleeding disorders community in other states have benefited from having Medicaid Expansion and highlight the importance of this access to care for those with bleeding disorders.
