Meeting on changes in the Medicaid program, Monday, Sept. 23, 2019, 6:30 p.m. at Parkersburg-Wood Co. Library, Summers Auditorium. Open to the public
Lisa Diehl, Northern Regional Coordinator for West Virginians for Affordable Health Care, an organization whose goals include preserving, protecting, and improving Medicaid and the Medicaid expansion, will be our speaker. ( see www.wvahc.org )
West Virginia was one of the states that opted to expand Medicaid when the Affordable Care Act was adopted in 2010. Medicaid provides health care and long-term care for more than half a million West Virginians. (more than 29% in 2017) Miss Diehl will talk about changes to the program since then and proposed changes under the current administration.
