The Partnership for Medicaid is a nonpartisan, nationwide coalition of organizations representing physicians, health care providers, safety-net health plans, counties, and labor. The goal of the coalition is to preserve and improve the Medicaid program.
The Partnership for Medicaid seeks to raise awareness about the vital role played by the Medicaid program, which provides essential health care services to more than 65 million people. By working in a bipartisan manner with all levels of government and affected constituency groups, we seek to provide viable solutions to improving the quality and delivery of services, with the aim of constraining costs without undermining the program’s fundamental goals.
Above all, The Partnership for Medicaid is a unified voice to ensure that Medicaid continues its crucial role as a strong safety net for vulnerable Americans.
