SALT LAKE— On April 1st, up to 70,000 Utahns became eligible to enroll in Medicaid after the legislature passed SB96, the replacement Medicaid expansion. Take Care Utah, the enrollment arm of Utah Health Policy Project, has been working hard to reach this newly eligible population and assist them in the enrollment process. So far approximately 30,000 Utahns have gained Medicaid benefits, either through transitioning from the limited Primary Care Network to full Medicaid, or by enrolling in the new expansion program.
vernor Herbert, in alliance with healthcare advocates, has created a video to help us with our combined goal of enrolling as many eligible Utahns and successfully connecting them to care.
