Governor Parnell: Please Expand Medicaid

To be delivered to Governor Sean Parnell

Petition Statement

Expanding Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act will provide health care opportunities for as many as 40,000 uninsured Alaskans.
There are currently 1,555 signatures. NEW goal - We need 2,000 signatures!

Petition Background

My son has a disease called Cystic Fibrosis. There is no cure but there are life extending treatments. Many of these are out of his reach because health insurance that would cover them is too expensive. He is one of the 40,000 working low income Alaskans who need the ACA Medicaid expansion so that they can access health care. The Alaskan economy depends on these hard working people in industries including fishing, tourism, retail and food service. All Alaskans, regardless of income, deserve equal access to health care without incurring back breaking debt or being a burden to the community. Health care is a right, not a privilege.
