This is Medicaid (TIM)
The TIM team continues to work endlessly in opposition to the Medicaid work requirement bill. If your organization is interested in writing an op-ed or connecting directly with your lawmaker, let us know and we can help facilitate the process. Professionals, caregivers, doctors, medical centers, the Governor and many others have shared how costly, and injurious this bill will be for many Minnesotans who already face immense barriers. In addition, Nathan Chomilo with Minnesota Doctors for Health Equity (MDHE) wrote a great piece discussing the Medicaid work requirement bill. His op-ed was featured in the Pioneer Press and can be found here. The bill has been referred to the Ways and Means Committee in the House and Finance Committee in the Senate. Lawmakers need hear about the negative impacts of this bill and how it will affect communities. As we plan and organize for the next round of hearings we know there will be little notice to organize effectively.
Therefore, if you or your organization has the flexibility to be called on to testify on short notice, email me with your information asap: Fatima@mnhomelesscoalition.org
