Medicaid expansion in a state as red as Montana seemed impossible, but Winning Connections worked tirelessly for nearly two months to help achieve health care coverage for low-income Montanans. At no additional cost to state tax-payers until 2017, Medicaid expansion in Montana ensures that senior citizens, veterans, and other vulnerable residents have access to care.
Working with a coalition including Montana Women Vote and Forward Together, we strategically connected constituents to “on-the-fence” lawmakers. Winning Connections helped constituents to clearly express their support for Medicaid Expansion and apply constant pressure throughout the process.
In the end, an unlikely outcome became a reality.
