   Medicaid Expansion on the November 2018 Ballot!    

 

On Tuesday, May 29, 2018, the Utah Lieutenant Governor's office officially declared that the Utah Decides Healthcare Medicaid expansion initiative will be on the ballot in November.   Signature requirements for the initiative to be included on the ballot were surpassed with more than 147,000 total verified signatures and sufficient validated signatures in 26 out of 29 senate districts.

 

UNA has advocated for the full expansion of Medicaid in Utah and supported the ongoing leadership of Utah Decides Healthcare and the Utah Health Policy Project over the last five years to achieve this significant milestone.  Hearty congratulations to our esteemed colleagues for giving all Utahns the opportunity to weigh in on this crucial healthcare issue. 

 

Make sure your voice is heard – vote in November to help improve healthcare access for our friends, neighbors and patients.

 



 

Currently, the UNA office is open by appointment only. 

If you need either to meet in person or by phone, please
