American Lung Association Comment on the Passage of Amendment D

“The American Lung Association is happy that 42,500 more South Dakota residents will have access to the comprehensive healthcare coverage that they need with the passage of Amendment D. The evidence is clear that Medicaid expansion has important health benefits for lung disease patients, including access to preventive services like tobacco cessation support and lung cancer screening at no cost, and is a critical tool to reduce health disparities. The Lung Association will work to ensure Amendment D is implemented swiftly in South Dakota and continue to champion the benefits of Medicaid expansion in the 11 remaining states that have not adopted this policy,” said Harold Wimmer, National President & CEO of the American Lung Association.
