A.M.P. NHeLP Campaign

April is Medicaid Awareness Month.

In recognition, the National Health Law Program (NHeLP) conducted an outreach campaign to highlight its work to defend and strengthen Medicaid throughout April. Medicaid is our constant. There is no NHeLP without Medicaid and Medicaid would not be what it is today without NHeLP.

The National Health Law Program is Medicaid’s strongest defender.

We advocate for strong Medicaid policies and laws in Congress and statehouses from coast to coast, protect the rights of Medicaid beneficiaries, and enforce Medicaid law in the courts.

These efforts improve access to the health care services that the people with the fewest resources and the least political clout need to achieve their highest attainable standard of health.

We are dedicated to building systems that eliminate discriminatory barriers to health, disrupt harmful stereotypes, enforce health rights, and promote health equity.

What is Medicaid?

Medicaid is the country’s most extensive health care program specifically designed to meet the needs of low-income individuals, who have disproportionate medical needs and health challenges.

Medicaid provides high-quality, affordable coverage to nearly 80 million low-income individuals and families, including 10 million people with disabilities. The program is the main source of long-term care coverage for millions of older adults and, along with the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), provides access to care for over 40 million children.

Medicaid covers one in five Americans, nearly half of all births in the U.S., and provides significant funding for hospitals, community health centers, physicians, nursing homes, and other essential health care services.
