Tell McCrory: Expand Medicaid in NC

To be delivered to Pat McCrory, Governor

Petition Statement

As a North Carolinian, I urge you to implement the Medicaid Expansion for low-income individuals under the Affordable Care Act.
There are currently 14,992 signatures. NEW goal - We need 15,000 signatures!

Petition Background

Gov. McCrory, the power to fundamentally change the health care system in our state is in your hands. By expanding Medicaid, low-income North Carolinians will have access to health coverage, and there is potential to undo the profound health disparities in our state.

As it stands, North Carolinians who are uninsured are likelier to develop serious health complications or die younger from diseases that are all too often preventable. By gaining health insurance through Medicaid, we would add health coverage for more than half-a-million North Carolinians within five years who otherwise would remain under insured.

We urge Gov. McCrory to implement the Medicaid Expansion for low-income individuals under the Affordable Care Act so that all of our state can remain healthy and strong.
