The VA House and Senate will soon consider a state budget that will have a huge impact on survivors of sexual violence and domestic violence.
All survivors of sexual and domestic violence deserve access to affordable, comprehensive health care in the aftermath of trauma - regardless of where they live or how much they earn.
In 2016, 93% of survivors who accessed sexual and domestic violence services in Virginia reported getting the help they needed with healthcare coverage/costs. Financial assistance, housing, and healthcare needs are consistently among the top priorities for the survivors we serve in Virginia - many of whom fall through the gaps in our healthcare and social services systems. Medicaid expansion would not only help close critical coverage gaps for survivors, but it would also reduce the service burden for local sexual and domestic violence agencies statewide.
This bipartisan and bicameral effort is one that is supported by the sexual and domestic violence community and organizations across the ideological spectrum. Join us in standing with survivors and SUPPORTING Medicaid expansion in Virginia now! #SupportSurvivors #ExpandMedicaidVA
Contact your representatives and urge them to stand with survivors and SUPPORT Medicaid expansion in Virginia! #SupportSurvivors #ExpandMedicaidVA
