Join members of the North Carolina Medicaid Expansion Coalition for Close the Medicaid Gap - Week of Advocacy
Patients, healthcare providers, individuals in the coverage gap, and advocates are planning a Week of Advocacy to raise public awareness about the need for North Carolina to close our Medicaid gap. Closing the gap would provide health coverage for half a million North Carolinians and create tens of thousands of jobs. Please join us for any or all of the events below!
