Medicaid for Idaho Tour, noon, Georgia Mae Plaza, downtown Bonners Ferry. Please join Reclaim Idaho for the second stop of their statewide Medicaid for Idaho Tour. One in every five working-age Boundary County residents is uninsured and 78,000 Idaho residents lack access to affordable healthcare. That’s why they’ve transformed a 1977 camper into a Medicaid Mobile, and that’s why they're traveling from town to town across the state to talk about the importance of preserving and expanding the Medicaid program. Our state legislators have the power to close the healthcare gap while saving state and local dollars. Yet they have failed to act. Please join to learn how you can take action to ensure all Idahoans have the opportunity to access the affordable health care they need.
