Health Action Webinar: What’s at Stake in the 2018 Elections
September 20, 2018 | 1pm ET
The 2018 elections will be critical in determining whether health care options are available for families and adults for years to come. Join Families USA experts for a discussion on what to expect on the state and national level. With Medicaid expansion ballot initiatives, governors’ races, and elections with party control of state legislatures hanging in the balance, the future of health care has never been such a critical issue in the voting booth at the state level. What’s more, the Congressional midterms will have a critical influence on the future of the Affordable Care Act and the structure of the Medicaid program as we know it.
