A Community Voice Calls for Medicaid Expansion in Louisiana

Dear Governor Jindal,

A Community Voice represents hundreds of thousands of working and low income families in Louisiana. We strongly support restoration of funds to allow the continued operation and services of the Louisiana hospitals that you have already have or plan to sell to private entities.

Further, A Community Voice believes that Medicaid expansion is the right choice for Louisiana and we urge you to reconsider your decision to reject this unprecedented opportunity to improve public health and grow the state’s economy. Medicaid expansion could provide health coverage to 400,000 Louisianans, most of whom are currently uninsured, and bring in billions of new federal dollars. It will benefit Louisiana’s families, businesses, health care providers and the economy—all at little cost to the state budget.

Sincerely,

Lanny Roy President
