Your Opportunity to Speak

megaphone with important coming out of it Hello!

The Idaho Department of Health and Welfare has recently opened public comment on an 1115 waiver to add work requirements to Idaho’s Medicaid expansion. During the legislative session, the Idaho Caregiver Alliance spoke out in support of implementation of Medicaid expansion as supported by the voters last fall and in opposition to these work requirements as burdensome, unnecessary, and costly. Two public hearings are planned in Boise. If you are not in Boise, you can call in to testify.
