In 2016, the uninsured rate for low-income Utahns was 16.8 percent
Where We Stand
Nearly $800 million in federal funding per year is already set aside for Utah that we aren’t getting back. It’s money 33 other states already get, but Utah has lost out on for years.
Voting YES to Expand Medicaid on November 6th will:
- bring those funds home,
- provide health coverage to more than 150,000 Utahns,
- create 4,100 jobs, and
- generate $2.9 billion in new economic activity in our state each year.
The Utah Decides Healthcare campaign lets Utah voters take control of their healthcare system and decide what is best for their families. Our initiative would secure Medicaid and CHIP for tens of thousands of Utahns, ensuring affordable access to doctors and hospitals for our most vulnerable citizens.
Utahns strongly support this measure by 60% to 36%. Voters have made it clear that they want to improve healthcare in Utah after so much inaction by the state legislature.
