New website promotes expansion of healthcare coverage
A new coalition, Alabama's Better Economy Starts Today - or Alabama's BEST- is designed to promote expanded healthcare access for low income Alabamians who don't qualify for Medicaid.
Alabama's BEST will advocate expanding access to health care by allowing more Alabamians to participate in the Medicaid program or by developing an Alabama-driven alternative to expand access to care.
A website, www.alabamasbest.org will highlight information related to expanded health coverage. Some of the partners in Alabama's BEST include Alabama Arise, AARP Alabama, Alabama Hospital Association, American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network, American Heart Association, the Alabama Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics, Alabama Primary Health Care Association, Glenwood Autism and Behavioral Health Center, Children's First Foundation, Family Voices of Alabama, and several others.
