Survey Says: Americans Support Increased Funding for Medicaid Amid COVID-19

In a recent Morning Consult poll, the Modern Medicaid Alliance asked registered voters for their opinions on the role of Medicaid amid the ongoing COVID-19 crisis. Respondents overwhelmingly agree: as tens of millions of Americans lose their jobs and health coverage due to COVID-19, increasing funding for Medicaid should be a priority for Congress.

Many of the millions of Americans who have recently lost their jobs are turning to Medicaid to address the health care needs of not only themselves, but their families as well. We must ensure the program is strong enough to support them when they need it most.

As our nation works to overcome the COVID-19 crisis, the Modern Medicaid Alliance is committed to protecting the critically important safety net that Medicaid provides. Join us by sharing the widespread support for a strong and stable Medicaid program today.
