The Medicaid for Idaho team is celebrating St. Patty’s Day with a Petition Drive on Sherman Ave! Medicaid Expansion is an effort to close the insurance gap for 87,000 needy Idahoans. Come find us at the Harvest Foods Parking Lot from 12:30 – 3:30 PM or at the Parade from 3:30 – 5:00 PM and sign the petition. We are collecting signatures from registered Idaho voters to add this initiative to the November ballot. Your signature could make the difference so stop by and show your support of the St. Patty’s Petition Drive and Idaho Medicaid Expansion.
We also invite volunteers to help make and wave signs to bring in passing cars and pedestrians! Feel free to wear something festive.
Parade workers can meet up around 3 at the Harvest Foods parking lot before going out to gather signatures. They will primarily gather signatures before and after the parade.

Medicaid for Idaho Expansion
Volunteers all over Idaho continue to crisscross the state to raise awareness and collect signatures to expand Medicaid for those without alternative access to affordable healthcare. Currently, 78,000 Idahoans are living in a healthcare gap. In other words, they were too poor to qualify for Obamacare and not poor enough to receive Medicaid. Ironically, a solution to this problem has been available which allows Idaho legislators to receive help from the federal government to close the gap while saving state and local dollars. Unfortunately, we must force them to force them to act. Therefore, we are collecting signatures to put this issue to a vote on the 2018 General Election ballot.,In addition, check out ReclaimIdaho.org,
