It’s Time to Expand Medicaid in Montana.
Expanding Medicaid in Montana is critical and will impact real working people. Medicaid expansion would provide up to 70,000 Montanans with affordable health care coverage.
Watch this new video from MBPC to listen to Michele’s story and hear how expanding Medicaid would benefit her. Michele’s Story
We also want to share with you a Montana physician’s perspective on how Medicaid expansion would benefit his patients, his business, and the health of our state and our communities. Dr. Griffin’s story
Medicaid expansion will save lives. – Please show your support.
The 2013 Montana Legislature had the ability to change the lives of 70,000 Montanans, create jobs, and boost our economy.
They could accept federal funds to expand the state’s Medicaid program and provide badly needed access to health care to uninsured Montanans, including veterans, single parents, American Indians, home healthcare workers, and low-income adults. Or, they could turn these dollars away, sending them to states like California and New Jersey, leaving tens of thousands of Montanans without the medical coverage they need.
Legislators worked together to create a bipartisan compromise to expand Medicaid. Unfortunately, the final bill became a victim of political gamesmanship and obstructionism by a small group of conservative legislators. The legislature adjourned without taking action.

It doesn’t have to be this way.
The fight to expand Medicaid is not over. Montana has a variety of policy options to enact expansion. The stakes are high. Montana needs Medicaid expansion, and we need your voice to make that happen. Take action today.
