Idaho Group Shifts From Education Initiative To Medicaid Enrollment Due To COVID-19

Boise State Public Radio


Organizers with the group Reclaim Idaho had to abandon their ballot initiative to increase education funding as the coronavirus began to spread in Idaho. But they're not done organizing. 

Now, they're trying to get more people to sign up for Medicaid – as Idaho bucks the trend of opening up its state-run health care exchange. 


Reclaim Idaho’s Luke Mayville joins Idaho Matters along with author David Daley who is the keynote speaker at an upcoming virtual gala for the group. 


As COVID-19 cases spread through the U.S. and Idaho, we’re committed to keeping you updated and informed. You can get updated info on cases, closures and how to stay healthy at any time on our Coronavirus news blog.
