The 2019 Montana Legislature will have many important issues, Medicaid expansion is one of the most important. We must reauthorize Medicaid expansion as the 2015 law was only originally authorized through May of 2019, so we must save this crucial program that 96,000 Montanans rely on to survive and thrive.

Here are several actions to get engaged immediately to help pass this crucial bill.

In Helena? Listening Session Tomorrow! 

Join a public listening session held by state legislators on LC 1088, a bill that would renew and continue Montana’s Medicaid expansion program. Do you have a Medicaid story? Want to share how Medicaid expansion has impacted your family or community? Come make your voice heard.

  • LC-1088 is still being drafted. I have no idea what’s going to be in it — and until I know exactly what the bill does, I’m not going to ask any legislator to support it.
