Medicaid Expansion in Virginia: What Would the Impact Be? (Entire Forum)
Tens of thousands of Virginians fall into the healthcare coverage gap because they do not qualify for Medicaid or another public program, do not receive coverage through their job, and do not qualify for subsidies to purchase insurance in the private market. In this panel, five distinguished speakers from government, business, and the health sector discuss the impact of the coverage gap on Virginians and the state’s economy.
Speakers (in order of appearance): Massey Whorley (Commonwealth Institute), Joe Flores (Virginia Secretariat of Health and Human Resources), Sheila Ryan (Arlington Free Clinic), Joe Vidulich (Fairfax County Chamber of Commerce), and Mary Margaret Whipple (Virginia Hospital and Healthcare Association).
