AFP-VA has been at the forefront of opposing expanding Medicaid as it surpasses the proper role of government. Instead, the group supports bold healthcare reforms that focus on expanding access to quality healthcare for more Virginians, not simply giving them a Medicaid insurance card and calling it coverage.
