2018: Medicaid Expansion
The Fairness Project is working with Utah Decides Healthcare on a ballot initiative to expand Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act and protect the Children’s Health Insurance Program for the state’s families. The measure, which will go before voters on Nov. 7, 2018, would bring healthcare to 127,000 Utahns. A report commissioned by the Utah Department of Health shows that it would create thousands of jobs and generate $2.9 billion in economic impact in the state. Polling shows voters support the Utah Decides Healthcare Act of 2018 by 60% to 36%.
