Medicaid expansion in West Virginia

It’s rare that West Virginia leads the nation in any measure of social well-being, but the state has expanded Medicaid to cover a higher percentage of its citizens than any other state.

AFSC’s West Virginia Economic Justice (WVEJ) program was part of a broad coalition that encouraged Governor Earl Ray Tomblin to expand Medicaid, which now serves more than 134,000 West Virginians.
