This is a great day for Virginia! I am thrilled that VBCF's advocacy for Medicaid Expansion has paid off after six years. A huge thank you to all of our committed volunteer advocates who made it possible."
Clifford L. Deal III, MD, FACS
President, VBCF Board of Directors
In case you missed the big news, last night the Virginia General Assembly (finally!)
passed state Medicaid expansion
. Now nearly 400,000 low-income Virginians will have access to affordable, quality health care including breast cancer screenings and treatment. This is a great win for all Virginians
VBCF is proud to have been a part of the Healthcare for All Virginians (
) Coalition for the last six years, working to expand Medicaid. Policy change can be a long slog but we stuck with it!
those of you who called, e-mailed, and met with your state delegates and senators during VBCF's State Advocacy Days to advocate for this important issue.
