Urging Congress to Keep Health Care Coverage for Eligible Families
Based on reports from the Biden Administration, 15 million people are expected to lose Medicaid when the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency ends and states are no longer forbidden from terminating families' Medicaid.
A coalition of leading civil rights organizations released a report urging Congress to take immediate action and prevent millions of families from losing health care coverage. Coalition group members include UnidosUS, the NAACP, the Asian & Pacific Islander American Health Forum, the Coalition on Human Needs, The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, and the National Urban League.
The report calls on Congress to reform Medicaid by cutting paperwork burdens that prevent eligible families from keeping their health care.
