Yes on Proposal 3: Medicaid Expansion

Utah

What would the initiative do?

  • Provide Medicaid for persons under the age of 65 and with incomes equal to or below 138 percent of the federal poverty line.
  • Increase the sales tax from 4.70 to 4.85 percent to finance the state's portion of the costs to expand Medicaid.
  • For 2019, the federal government would cover 93% of the costs of the Medicaid expansion.
  • Medicaid expansion would extend coverage to 150,000 people in the state of Utah if passed under this initiative.
