An estimated 78,000 Idahoans fall into the health care coverage gap — making too much to qualify for Medicaid, but too little to qualify for subsidies on the state health care exchange — according to the group Close the Gap Idaho.
Close the Gap Idaho says it is collecting stories to share with lawmakers and in other forums to lobby for the passage of the Healthy Idaho Plan and the redesign of Medicaid to cover Idahoans who can’t get coverage.
To participate, call 1-844-435-7785. You will be prompted to leave your contact information. A Close the Gap Idaho staff member will contact you within one week.
The group says stories and other information will only be shared with the storyteller’s permission.
