Please join us at the Capitol for “Cover Georgia Day” on Tuesday, February 19th from 9AM to 1PM.
Cover Georgia is a coalition of consumer and patient advocates, providers, and industry stakeholders who have come together around a common goal: covering Georgia’s uninsured by expanding Medicaid.
- We will meet at 9am at Central Presbyterian Church (201 Washington Street, across from the State Capitol) for a training on the importance of health coverage and the opportunity that expanding Medicaid provides for hundreds of thousands of uninsured Georgians.
- Following the training session, we will walk across the street to the State Capitol to meet with our individual State Representatives and State Senators to ask them to support the Medicaid expansion
- At 11:30am, we will reconvene for a press conference and demonstration of support for the Medicaid expansion. We will also hear from individuals whose lives will be affected by this important decision.
- After the press conference, we will walk back over to Central Presbyterian Church to debrief and share information about our individual conversations with legislators.
Don’t miss out on this important event–please join us and make a difference. Help us Cover Georgia. There is no cost to attend but please RSVP so we have the necessary materials on hand.
