Cover Georgia is a broad coalition of community stakeholders and advocates from all across our state. We have launched a shared campaign to ensure that all Georgians regardless of income get the health coverage and care they need. We want to expand our state’s Medicaid program to cover low-income Georgians as envisioned by the Affordable Care Act. Health care is critically important to the health of Georgia’s families, communities, and economy. We believe we should work together to expand access to health care for all Georgians, especially those who can least afford it.

The Cover Georgia campaign is fighting for a pathway to health coverage for all Georgians. Please join us in our campaign by sharing your story, calling your elected officials, and speaking out.


Stand with us! Join our email list and receive updates. 


If you represent an organization that would like to join the Cover Georgia coalition, contact Alyssa Green
