Medicaid: Arkansas

Status:

April 17, 2013: A plan to use additional Medicaid dollars to purchase coverage for the uninsured passed both the House and the Senate. Governor Mike Beebe (D) has also been a strong supporter of using these federal dollars to provide health coverage. Pending final approval from HHS, this private option will extend health coverage to all those under 138% of the federal poverty line.

Past Actions Taken:

  • March 2013: Our partners at the Arkansas Interfaith Alliance organized a sign-on letter of faith leaders that was sent to members of the AR legislature. See PDF of letter below. 
  • March 7, 2013: A large coalition of groups held a rally on the steps of the Capitol building. Read about it here!
