Medicaid: Iowa


May 22, 2013: Gov. Terry Branstad, who was originally opposed, reached a compromise with legislators who were in support of accepting federal funds to provide health coverage to the uninsured, so that 150,000 additional Iowans will gain access to coverage. 

Past Actions:

  • April 30, 2013: A "Nun on the Bus" had a letter to the editor published in the Des Moines Register in support of accepting the funding for Medicaid
  • March 14, 2013: NETWORK members attended a public forum with other advocates and Sen. Jack Hatch at Tally's Restaurant  in Des Moines.
