On January 18, 2012 the Idaho Community Action Network and CID (Consortium for Idahoans with Disabilities) organized a roundtable panel discussion on Medicaid and the impacts of Idaho’s Medicaid budget cuts. ICAN members Retta Green and Terri Sterling participated in this discussion and talked about the economic and social impacts of budget cuts to Idaho’s Medicaid program.
ICAN, The Alliance for a Just Society and CID also unveiled the “Medicaid Matters in Idaho: Real Stories, Real Impacts, Real Communities” storybook. The storybook connects the reader to the real stories of Idahoans who are impacted by these cuts.
