The Healthcare for All Virginians coalition represents 89 organizations and many more individuals committed to the principle that all Virginians should have access to affordable quality health care.
Fortunately, that basic idea is accepted by many more organizations and individuals throughout the Commonwealth. That is why we are seeking to expand the coalition to 100 members by the opening of the Virginia General Assembly’s 2014 legislative session.
But this isn’t just a numbers game. Our work matters. In 2013, the coalition members mobilized for a critical public hearing regarding the potential Medicaid expansion. The result? Of approximately 100 speakers, 70 were in favor and only 30 were against. On the Medicaid Innovation and Reform Commission’s public comment Web page, about 2,100 of 2,600 comments have been in favor of Medicaid expansion. We will build on this momentum during the 2014 legislative session and beyond.
If you or your organization believes that accessible and affordable health care for all is essential to a prosperous Virginia, we sincerely hope that you will consider joining our coalition. You can find the 2014 Sign-Up form here.
