Sign Here: Petitions for expanded Medicaid at Northwest Insurance Agency in Grangeville

GRANGEVILLE — April 30 is the last day to collect signatures for the Medicaid for Idaho initiative to put Medicaid expansion on the November ballot.

Expanding Medicaid will save nearly a million dollars in annual property and state taxes in Idaho County alone. Statewide, the savings would be $34 million annually.
