We must acknowledge Medicaid's vital role in Alabama

ACPP executive director Kimble Forrister issued the following statement Wednesday, Feb. 24, 2016, after an Alabama Senate committee approved a 2017 General Fund budget:

“We’re disturbed to see Medicaid on the chopping block again, but it was encouraging today to hear senators acknowledge Medicaid’s fundamental role in Alabama’s health care system. There is no way to cut Medicaid without devastating consequences, and ultimately it needs new revenue. As the General Fund debate goes on, we hope lawmakers will take to heart the crucial role that Medicaid plays in the health of Alabamians and our economy.”
