ACT Fights Alongside Those in Healthcare Limbo in Fort Worth
Sheila Anderson, a leader with Allied Communities of Tarrant (ACT) in Fort Worth, is one of more than one million in Texas living life in healthcare limbo. People like Sheila, who make too much to qualify for government assistance, but not enough to qualify for subsidies in the Marketplace (reserved for those making at least 138% of the federal poverty level) will not be helped since Texas did not expand Medicaid. That is why she, with others of ACT and Dallas Area Interfaith, rallied at the Capitol earlier this year and are fighting still for a ‘Texas Solution,’ and idea gaining support from local Chambers of Commerce.
