A Critical Conversation On Affordable Care in North Carolina
Please join us as WNCAP hosts a Community Forum on Medicaid expansion and the Insurance Exchange, March 14, 2013, at 6PM in the Mountain View Room at the Sherrill Center, UNCA.

Medicaid expansion would increase health care access to 500,000 working poor; provide reimbursement to hospitals for uncompensated care; and create an estimated 23,000 health care industry jobs. Despite these figures, NC lawmakers have voted to block Medicaid expansion. Find out what we can do now.

Panelists will include Shannon Dowler, Chief Medical Officer, Blue Ridge Community Health Services; Jaclyn Kiger, Attorney, Pisgah Legal Services; Allison Rice, Senior Attorney, Duke AIDS Legal Project and Adam Searing, Director, NC Justice Center’s Health Access Coalition. We thank our community partners for their support on this event: ABIPA, Children First/Communities in Schools, Just Economics, Pisgah Legal Services, Planned Parenthood of Asheville, United Way of Asheville and Buncombe County, WNC Community Health Services and WNC Health Advocates.
