FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Midland Care Connection Supports Medicaid Expansion – Senate Bill 252
For over four decades, Midland Care has been a pioneer and leader in responding to the most challenging health care needs in our community. As we look to the future, we are in support of Senate Bill 252 (SB252), an expansion to Medicaid.
The expansion of Medicaid provides support to millions of Americans including elderly adults, people with disabilities, children, and low-income adults. This expansion in Kansas would help ensure that 150,000 Kansans not currently covered by insurance would have access to affordable care.
“We have seen our health care system change with time, but our purpose at Midland Care remains the same to ensure our community’s seniors live with dignity and have access to the care they deserve,” said Karren Weichert, Midland Care President and CEO. “We ask for your support of Senate Bill 252, by contacting your Kansas State Representatives and State Senator and ask them to vote yes on SB252.”
Together, we can make a difference in the lives of those in our communities. To find your Senators and Representatives contact information visit www.openstates.org/ks/legislators.
