To be delivered to: The Utah State House, The Utah State Senate, and Governor Gary Herbert
Did you know that just being poor does not make you eligible for Medicaid in Utah?
To qualify for Medicaid, an adult in Utah must earn less than $8,000 a year and have dependent children or earn less than $15,000 and be permanently disabled. Just being poor is not enough. No wonder nearly 380,000 uninsured Utahns are at risk at losing their health, their job, their personal savings, and their home if they get hurt or sick and can’t pay out-of-control medical bills.
The good news is that Utah can make a positive change.
Right now, for a minimal state investment, Governor Herbert and the Utah state legislature have the opportunity to make Utah's Medicaid program whole, and provide health care coverage to thousands of your neighbors, friends, and families.
