Today, more than 500,000 children, seniors and people living with disabilities need Medicaid to get access to the health care they need. For seniors and people living with disabilities, Medicaid also helps with in-home supports so these Coloradans can live their most independent lives. Our health care system needs Medicaid to provide insurance to thousands of Coloradans who would otherwise go without insurance and care. Medicaid is an important part of the Colorado economy, especially in rural Colorado enabling hospitals to provide critical care.
CCDC’s goal is to create a groundswell of support for Medicaid aimed at statewide candidates so that one cannot win a statewide race in Colorado without supporting Medicaid. This project is to help explain to everyone what Medicaid does, reach out to those who benefit from Medicaid directly and indirectly, and tie the importance of Medicaid to voting. We want people to educate candidates for office, especially statewide office, about the importance of Medicaid. Our goal is that every statewide candidate for any office, of any party, understands the important role Medicaid plays both in the lives of people with disabilities and in Colorado’s health care system.”
Goal: Create a groundswell of support for Medicaid in Colorado by providing clear useful messaging to a large diverse coalition.
