Arkansas passed Senate Bill 1020 expanding affordable health care coverage to more Arkansans. This achievement is a huge deal for the future of our state. Through federally funded medicaid dollars, hundreds of thousands of Arkansans will have health care coverage for the first time. Hospitals will be paid for the services they provide these people. Jobs will be saved. Critical medical services will be supported. Communities will be strengthened. Our state will be stronger.
Thanks to everyone across Arkansas who worked tirelessly to fight for this effort. It was a battle. At EXIT, we are proud to have been asked by leadership at the Arkansas Hospital Association to play a small role in the effort. Below is the ad we developed and ran statewide while the bill was being discussed and voted on and voted on again.
