medicaid signing smallSupporters of expanding Medicaid sign a poster before delivering it to the governor's office. (Photo by Stephen Koranda)Supporters of expanding Medicaid delivered nearly 3,000 signatures to Governor Sam Brownback’s office yesterday (WED), asking him to support an expansion of the state’s Medicaid program. Anna Lambertson is with a coalition of organizations pushing for Medicaid expansion. She spoke during a rally at the Statehouse.

Speaking with reporters yesterday (WED), Governor Brownback said he’s still considering options and looking at what other states are doing.

Medicaid is a health care program for the aged, disabled and low-income. In Kansas, the income requirements for adults to qualify are very strict. Expanding the program would allow more Kansans to be covered.
