March for Medicaid – Tuesday, Nov. 6

You may not know, but Raccoon Forks microbusinesses are a part of Optimae LifeServices and one of our main missions is to employ individuals with mental illness and intellectual disabilities who otherwise struggle to find work. We provide them with coaching to give them the needed skills to succeed and sometimes move onto employment elsewhere. This vulnerable population has seen cuts to vital medical and social services due to the inception of Medicaid managed care and we need Iowans to step up to the plate. That’s why we want to get the word out about the #MarchforMedicaid, hosted by the Bright Radical Star Fund, happening Election Day (November 6), in which Iowans are being encouraged to cast their ballots and elect leaders who will make changes to the state’s broken Medicaid system.
