About This Issue

Expanding Medicaid is a smart investment that will bridge Virginia's health insurance gap and provide affordable and comprehensive coverage to 400,000 Virginians. With an expansion, several hundred Virginians with MS stand to gain critical prescription drug coverage and standard medical benefits such as physician and hospital care as well as home- and community-based services which allow people with disabilities to remain independent and avoid premature admission to costly facilities such as nursing homes. Additionally, expanding Medicaid will result in broad positive eceonomic impact for the Commonweath. Estimates suggest as many as 30,000 jobs may be created in Virginia as a result of expansion.
