As Alabama remains one of the last states to not expand Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act in 2012, a coverage gap exists for individuals who out-earn the $4,476 per year for a family of three, but under the $23,030 required to be eligible for a subsidized health plan from Healthcare.gov. Expanding Medicaid would help over 250,000 people get access to health insurance and medical care.
This event features a panel of individuals impacted by this coverage gap, researchers studying the impact of Medicaid expansion, and physicians who see the health implications of uninsured populations.
Registration is required, lunch will be provided.
