The Zonta Club of Birmingham urges Alabama’s Governor and Legislature to act speedily to take advantage of newly available Federal dollars to expand Medicaid to address long-standing gaps in health care availability and financial strains affecting our health care system. As an organization focused on the well-being of women, we are deeply concerned about the lack of access to adequate, affordable health care for far too many Alabama women and tragic health outcomes such as Alabama’s high maternal mortality rate. It is estimated that the expansion of Medicaid would allow over 150,000 Alabama women to have health insurance. This immediate opportunity must not be missed.
