Twin Falls Companies Endorse Idaho Effort To Expand Medicaid

Oct 23, 2018

At an event in Twin Falls Monday, Chobani and Clif Bar announced they support Proposition 2. The effort to expand Medicaid to thousands of people who currently make too much to qualify for subsidized health care has garnered support from the right and the left.

 

The two Magic Valley food processing giants threw their support behind the effort during an event advocating for the proposition. Idaho House Health and Welfare Chairman Fred Wood was in attendance, and welcomed the endorsement from Clif Bar and Chobani.

An estimated 51,000-62,000 Idahoans currently fall in the Medicaid gap. Voters will decide whether to pass the expansion measure on November 6.
