Maine voters will be asked this November to decide whether the state should expand its Medicaid program (MaineCare) under the federal Affordable Care Act. This is important to United Way of Greater Portland because ensuring people have the opportunity to live as healthy a life as possible is central to United Way of Greater Portland’s mission and community focus. When people have access to medical care, they are more likely to succeed in school and work, and live longer, healthier lives. As such, United Way of Greater Portland supports the statewide referendum to expand MaineCare.
