Speaker: Kids primary recipients of Medicaid
For more than 20 years, the United States and North Carolina have been marching toward universal health coverage for children.
Efforts to reform health care shouldn't halt that momentum, said NC Child policy analyst Sarah Vidrine at a meeting of the League of Women Voters Thursday night. The meeting was held at Christ Episcopal Church in Elizabeth City.
Considering a Congressional bill to “repeal and replace” the Affordable Care Act and to cut Medicaid failed less than a week ago, the discussion is also timely.
