SKIL, KANSAS POOR PEOPLE’S CAMPAIGN RALLY FOR MEDICAID EXPANSION

PITTSBURG, Kan.—The SKIL Resource Center and Kansas Poor People’s Campaign joined forces in Pittsburg Saturday, October 3, 2020 to march for the expansion of Medicaid in the state. SKIL President/CEO Shari Coatney, other SKIL employees, representatives of Kansas Poor People’s Campaign and others called for systems change in Kansas’ healthcare system during a peaceful protest march that began at the Pittsburg SKIL office, stopped at Senator Jerry Moran’s office and concluded at the public pavilion west of Broadway St.

Since 2014, Kansas has lost millions of dollars because it has refused to expand Medicaid, causing great stress on community programs and services that cannot meet the needs that healthcare would, according to Kansas Poor People’s Campaign. SKIL and the Campaign hosted the march because Kansas continues its refusal to expand Medicaid healthcare coverage, even amid the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic.

“It is exciting to be working with Poor People’s Campaign to bring awareness to the issues regarding our state not expanding Medicaid,” Coatney said in a column posted October 4, 2020 on SKIL’s website about the event.

“Medicaid expansion would allow many people who work as personal care attendants to have access to medical coverage that, in return, would help people level the playing field when hiring attendants,” she said in the column. “Many times good, caring people will have to leave their jobs as caregivers to get health insurance. This leaves a shortage of attendants.”

Andy Rausch, a southeast Kansas resident and SKIL employee, quoted in a news release by Kansas Poor People’s Campaign, said, “I am one of many Kansans for whom Medicaid has been beneficial. I had a heart transplant in 2018. Had I not had that transplant, which I got only because I had Medicaid, I wouldn’t be here today. My children would have no father.”
