"I AM Medicaid"

Join the #IamMedicaid campaign today!

Alabama’s Medicaid debate is about more than numbers. It’s about people. That’s why Arise is proud to take part in the new #IamMedicaid campaign to help change the conversation around Medicaid.

Medicaid is the backbone of Alabama’s health care system. It insures one in five Alabamians, and almost all of them are our most vulnerable residents: children, seniors, and people with disabilities. The state’s looming Medicaid cuts could lead to closures of hospitals, doctor’s offices and other providers across Alabama. That would be a devastating blow for vulnerable people – and for our entire state.

If you’re on social media, learn more about the #IamMedicaid campaign and get started today!

It’s time to highlight the faces behind the numbers. #IamMedicaid is an effort for Alabama Medicaid patients, their families and their neighbors to remind lawmakers and the public that real people and real lives are affected by the Medicaid debate.

Participating is easy: 

  1.       Print out a #IamMedicaid sign here.

  2. Have someone take a picture of you holding the sign.

  3. Then post the picture and tell your story on Facebook, Twitter and other social media using the hashtag #IamMedicaid.

Thank you for your support – and for speaking up for a better Alabama for all!
