Arkansas Has Cut 12,000 People off Medicaid in Just Three Months of a Work Requirement!

Dear Friends,

Below is a new report with a stark reminder of what is at stake if Governor Holcomb succeeds in imposing his planned red-tape work requirement on Hoosiers who rely on the Healthy Indiana Plan for their healthcare:

Arkansas has already cut 12,000 people off of healthcare in just the first three months of rolling out their work requirement.

We know well the consequence of Hoosiers losing access to care. Many of our neighbors will suffer, and some of them will die: http://www.pnhp.org/excessdeaths/health-insurance-and-mortality-in-US-adults.pdf

Thanks to all of you who have pushed out the petition online and in-person: the online version now has well over 700 signatures. But please:

Consider another year-end push on social media and in-person to share the petition. It is online at https://www.change.org/p/stop-hip-work-requirements-that-take-health-care-from-indiana-s-people

Make plans to join us in the Statehouse in January to deliver the petition and the signatures to the Governor. More details coming soon.

Thank you for all your work to protect Hoosiers’ access to lifesaving healthcare,

Fran
