Save Mississippi’s Medicaid

During the regular legislative session, lawmakers did not reauthorize Medicaid funding. Thus, on July 1, Mississippi’s Medicaid program will no longer be funded. This will not only affect individuals covered by Medicaid, but all who are employed in jobs that are funded in full or in part by Medicaid dollars. The defunding of Medicaid will result in thousands of layoffs and firings in the health care field.

 

That’s why I started a petition to Governor Phil Bryant, which says:

 

As July 1, 2013 ticks ever closer, we understand the tremendous impact not funding Medicaid will have on our state. Not only will thousands of children, pregnant women, and the disabled not have the health care they desperately need, but money for sliding fee scale clinics, STD testing, pregnancy prevention, and mental health services will be cut off from the community. This lack of funding will lead to massive layoffs and firings within the Mississippi health care and social services sector.

The health and well-being of Mississippi is not a partisan issue. Call the special session immediately!

Thanks!

Time to step up and help the people of Mississippi….we have had enough vague promises and political games……time to get serious about the state’s residents……
