Hi Advocate,

You may have noticed that Medicaid expansion has been in the news a lot lately. It's kind of a big deal. You can help shape the debate around Medicaid expansion and the state budget by submitting a letter to the editor of your local newspaper.

If you're interested, we've listed Op-eds and Editorials from newspapers across Ohio here. Each piece highlights why Medicaid expansion is a win-win for the state of Ohio.

A decision to include Medicaid expansion in the next state budget will:

  • help Ohio realize nearly $1.4 billion in savings through 2022
  • create over 30,000 jobs through 2022; and
  • result in nearly 500,000 uninsured Ohioans gaining health coverage

We need you to help keep the conversation front and center. Will you write a letter to the editor (LTE) urging lawmakers to include Medicaid expansion in the state budget?
