Join the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network (ACS CAN) for a virtual event exploring the role of Medicaid in the U.S. territories. Hear directly from patients, health care providers and Medicaid administrators in Guam, Puerto Rico, and the US Virgin Islands about the importance of Medicaid in addressing health disparities, responding to natural disasters and the pandemic as well as the major problems caused by block grant funding for Medicaid. Inadequate and inequitable funding of Medicaid in the territories is not the only cause of disparities in cancer and other health outcomes, but the program has a valuable role to play in helping to address disparities and supporting health systems.
