Happy Friday, advocates!

Things continue to move along in the confusing road to Medicaid expansion paved by SB96.
Last week the state submitted the phase 3 "Fallback Plan" waiver for public comment.

The state-level comment period is open NOW through October 27th.
We are finalizing updates to our survey portal and we will share it as soon as it is ready!
Meanwhile, you can also submit directly to the state HERE .

Additionally, we want people to SHOW UP for MEDICAID at two in-person comment hearings:

M onday, October 7th from 4-6 pm, at the Multi-Agency State Office Building, 195 N 1950 W, Salt Lake City, Utah- room 1020C
Thursday, October 10th from 2-4 pm   , as part of the Medical Care Advisory Committee (MCAC), at the Cannon Health Building, 288 N 1460 W, Salt Lake City, Utah- room 125
See an outline of what is in the new waiver HERE
