Utah Medicaid Expansion filed 10/2/17


Karina Brown of Logan, Utah, was one of several people to speak at a news conference Monday after the group filed the paperwork. Her mother died of a stroke in 2013 when she didn’t have insurance was a few months away from qualifying for Medicare, The Salt Lake Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/2yk5VJY ).

“It was really gratifying because I know what that could mean for people,” Brown said “It’s being able to access primary care without fear of exorbitant costs and receive the care they need to be productive.”
