Latina Gilyard: Medicaid Expansion Offers Coverage
I am a graduate of Morgan State University. Unfortunately, while I attended college, I fell off my mother’s health care plan, and I had trouble getting full time work, so I went without health insurance for 10 years. Three years ago, I signed up through the state and was approved (Medicaid Expansion). I’m on medication for high blood pressure, but the prescription was just lowered because I’ve lost weight, I’m eating better, and I believe my health has improved because of Obamacare.
