What Can You Do to Help ALL Utahns Get the Affordable Health Coverage They Need? 

Thousands of Utahns are still left without affordable coverage. For those who are eligible, their Medicaid coverage now comes with additional barriers and restrictions.

  • There will soon be important opportunities to weigh in and provide your input on partial expansion, as Utah seeks additional federal waiver approval. The forthcoming public comment period will be a critical moment to tell the feds to reject Utah’s partial expansion, caps on enrollment and work reporting requirements. Stay tuned for important updates and opportunities to speak out.
  • Help individuals, parents or families connect with care if they are eligible for Medicaid under Utah’s partial expansion. Apply for Medicaid here. Have you been able to get covered? Or were you denied coverage because of partial expansion? Share your health coverage story here.
