Graham

That’s going to push the state Medicaid program to its financial limits, says Jeff Graham, executive director of Georgia Equality, in a new GHN Commentary.

Graham urges Congress to provide more federal funding for Medicaid, and more support for health care workers on the front lines in the battle against COVID-19.

“Health care workers shouldn’t be forced to reuse masks or surgical gowns that are meant to be disposed of between infected patients,” he writes.
