“Last fall a decent number of health and human service organizations actively and publicly supported the passage of Medicaid expansion. Perhaps the most visible is The Speedy Foundation who actively work to reduce the number of deaths in Idaho by suicide. With more Idahoans having access to mental health care benefits there is a greater chance of people getting the support they need thereby reducing suicide deaths.” - Idaho Nonprofit Center
The Speedy Foundation is reaching out to implore you to #advocate. We reach out while sitting in yet another Senate Health and Welfare hearing regarding the partial repeal of Medicaid expansion, which ignores the will of the voters and will create an expensive secondary coverage gap.
We were met by guards at the doors of a full hearing and now sit in an overflow room with a Capitol full of legislators anxious to get home. At the same time, there is an initiative to limit citizen voices and both of these issues are opportunities for you to #Advocate. Time is of the essence.
