The American Diabetes Association has expressed support for a bill sponsored by Rep. Raúl M. Grijalva, D-Ariz. The Medicaid Enhancement and Emergency Job Creation Act is designed to expand funding for state Medicaid programs, which could help create jobs and prevent hospital and health center closures. "Restoring the enhanced Medicaid matching rates will allow states to reach our most vulnerable Americans while creating jobs in the health care sector," according to the group's letter of support.
